College Advising Package
We LOVE working with our students, but we also need to charge for our services. We work with all our students on a package basis. Students can start with Collegeology as early as spring of sophomore year, but we typically start meeting some time during junior year.
Due to the nature of working with students and families, no college search process is identical. We think it’s easiest to explain our comprehensive package in two parts.
Part 1: Exploration
Meetings* with student (and parents too, if okay with the student) to get to know them, explore a variety of colleges and build a list that excites them about life after high school. We also include topics like setting goals for junior and senior year in high school and high school class scheduling.
*Meetings can be in person or remotely via Zoom/Skype, depending on student preference. Often students prefer a quick check-in from home to review a few school visits and/or update on research.
Part 2: Application
Meetings with student focused on the application process, including essay brainstorming and review, task lists and deadline management, application completion. We often offer the option of small group sessions for more general topics, like filling out the Common Application, if students prefer to work alongside peers for part of the process (we always have the one-on-one option too, but find some students have more fun when doing some of these tasks together).
Our fee also includes college resume assistance, access to our online research and application tracking system (CCP), mock interviews, bean bag lounging opportunities and unlimited snacks.
Here are few quick notes to share about payments, fees, etc. . .
We ask that you pay a $500 non-refundable deposit after our first meeting together, but it's okay if you need to make multiple payments toward our package fee over the course of working with us (just please pay in full by the time your student graduates high school!).
We know some students' lives can be more complicated/interesting/exciting than others and we may be able to help at other points in his/her journey through high school and/or college. Please note any meetings PRIOR to spring of sophomore year or AFTER high school graduation (including senior summer!) will be billed at an hourly rate.
Where do we meet with students?
Collegeology meets with students in their Seattle office and/or remotely (using Zoom, Skype or FaceTime). Students do not need to live in the Greater Seattle area to successfully and effectively work with Collegelology!
