College Guidance Network™ demystifies the college application process, especially in this time of COVID. We help students and those that support them with a free webinar series featuring nationally recognized experts and experienced admissions officers who offer insights on essential topics like how to develop a school list, write an effective essay, and maximize financial aid.

College selection is one of the most important decisions you and your family will have to make. But finding the time to dig into it is not always easy. That’s why we created CGN Shorts. Each episode will take you through a specific part of the admissions process with real-world, actionable guidance from experts across the admissions and counseling landscape. Go at your own pace with CGN Shorts.
