For Independent Educational Consultants

The College Advisor Newsletter

Newsletters are the most effective way to maintain regular contact with your students and their families, but time to research and write newsletter articles is hard to find in the educational consultant’s busy day. With an individually customized newsletter from The College Advisor, you can inform and educate your clients while promoting your independent educational consulting practice.

The College Advisor newsletter is written especially for the clients and prospective clients of independent educational consultants. The newsletter carries no outside advertisements and is free of regional, cultural, or collegiate biases. Each newsletter is customized for individual subscribers with their own corporate information. Subscribers also may choose their own newsletter masthead, incorporating a photo or corporate logo and corporate colors if they wish. The newsletter arrives as a pdf and can be easily attached to an email for distribution or may be printed for mailing and marketing.

Issued ten times per year, the newsletter has a recurring format. Each issue features:

  1. A two-month Timeline of suggested tasks and important dates
  2. A full-page Career or Major Focus that spotlights a different occupation/major each month.
  3. Money Matters deals with financing an education. Articles feature such subjects as 529 plans, applying for financial aid, scholarship searches, completing the FAFSA, and negotiating the best financial aid package.
  4. A Website of the Month feature highlights a website of value for college-bound students and their families

Additional articles address time-related issues. Topics featured include testing and test preparation, college selections, interview techniques, college visits, essay writing, application issues, summer programs, internships, dealing with disabilities, athletes, resume writing, and college transition.

The newsletter is geared to all college-bound high school students and their parents. There is something to appeal to each of your readers in every issue. A year's subscription (10 issues) is priced at $425.  To start your subscription, click here. (IECA and HECA members receive an extra issue at no additional charge.)
