The College Years

You’ve been admitted and are enrolled.   Congratulations!   You have cleared the first hurdle on this journey.


New Freshman Convocation – Washington University in St. Louis

Today the typical student takes 4.7 years (let’s just say 5 years) to graduate.¹  Many students get to college and struggle the first year and/or fail to understand academic rules and processes causing extended enrollment beyond four years.  This costs time and $$.

Unlike most college planning professionals who focus solely on admission, I continue to guide you around, over and through roadblocks preventing graduation in 4 years.  I leverage my 20+ years as a student service insider offering tips and advisement to make the college years a success – with a focus on creating a plan to graduate in four years.
