E-Planning


Whether you're in Great Neck or in Guam, time constraints, logistics, or simply dollars and cents may make face-to-face, in-person counseling impractical, if not impossible.

That's why College Connection offers E-Planning, a comprehensive combo of online, e-mail and telephonic counseling, with a real-live college planning counselor on hand and on call, to seamlessly take you through the college admissions process.

With College Connection's online and interactive resources, and the assistance of a college counselor never more than a telephone call, e-mail, or even a Tweet away, navigating the road to college has never been easier or more stress-free. [Why, you can even do all of your college planning in your PJs! ;-)]

The rate for E-Planning, deeply discounted from that for in-person consultation, is $100/hour (pro-rated after the first hour). [E-Planning must be paid online via credit card. $200 advance deposit required.]
