Plan college rep visits and college tours in conjunction with other school staff.

Give presentations and offer workshops for students and parents to better understand the steps necessary for college attendance.


Serve your school in other ways relating to college access.

Change the lives of the high school students you serve.


Work as part of local, state, and national organizations devoted to improving college access for high school students.

Michigan State University College Advising Corps (MSUCAC), in close partnership with the College Advising Corps and the Michigan College Access Network, is seeking to help more Michigan students pursue postsecondary education.

Recent Michigan State University graduates will serve as advisers in selected public high schools across Michigan, particularly those that are located in communities with low socio-economic status and low adult educational attainment rates. Working alongside school professionals, MSUCAC advisers will support students as they make the transition from high school to a postsecondary institution.

Advisers work full time and focus on low-income, first-generation students, mentoring these students through the complex and costly steps toward college enrollment. Advisers will provide students and their families with relevant information regarding the benefits of a postsecondary education, preparing for college attendance, and the admission and financial aid processes.
