FAQ

Need clarification?

How does Corsava Counselor Connect Work?

After you purchase Corsava Counselor Connect, you and your student will be sent an email with access to your college questionnaires, Corsava Card Sort activity, and career assessment.

Once we have received your completed materials, a Corsava Counselor will be assigned to you based on your student's specific needs and will reach out to you and your student to schedule your first live session.

After your first session, your Corsava Counselor will build your college list and action plan with targeted tips and send your Corsava College Package to you for your review and use. 

You can then schedule your second meeting anytime within six months. Some students prefer using the second meeting to discuss their list and action plan, others prefer to keep their meeting for questions that come up during the application process. It is up to you! 

When will I get my Corsava College Package?

Your Corsava College Package will be sent to your email within 14 days of completing the first live video session.

What can I expect to see in my Individualized Action Plan?

  • Advice on how to demonstrate your authentic self to colleges (like how to highlight your activities) and increase the likelihood of admissions
  • Clarity on the admissions process (key schedule points along your college admissions journey) and where to focus attention
  • Information to help you understand the changing testing landscape
  • Information on the essay process and how find help if needed
  • Tips on how to receive more merit aid and scholarships

  • Resources for specific needs: learning support, athletes, portfolios, maker’s spaces, first-generation students, auditions, etc.

What will we do in a Live Session?

It's a conversation, so it's not completely scripted, but you and your Corsava counselor will likely discuss:

Session 1
  • Meet and Greet
  • Any previous experience with colleges (visits, research, etc.)
  • High school experience and future coursework
  • Overview of testing
  • Top cards from the Corsava card sort exercise
  • Discussion of geography preferences

How does TuitionFit work?

Your Corsava Counselor Connect package includes a Premium TuitionFit account, which your Corsava Counselor will set up for you and you will continue to have access to after receiving your Corsava College Package.

Your Premium account will give you access to actual prices paid by students just like you when available, the balance of grants, scholarships and loans, and any grants that won't last beyond the first year. When making a final choice or appealing for a better price, use the share and compare tool to see the actual prices that colleges are offering to other students in real time.
