New York University

The New York University College Advising Corps (NYU CAC) seeks to increase the number of low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented New York City students entering and completing postsecondary education. By placing recent graduates as college advisers in NYC high schools, advisers work full-time with high school students and assist them with planning their college searches, completing college admissions and financial-aid applications, and enrolling in their best fit school. In the 2017-2018 school year, NYU CAC expanded to serve 42 high schools in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx.
