CollegePoint National Virtual Advising Initiative

We are evaluating how CollegePoint, a national initiative providing one-on-one virtual advising to high-achieving, low-and moderate-income high school students, impacts attendance at selective colleges and universities.


The Problem


Deep Dive into the Data

  • Our evaluation harnesses a robust array of longitudinal data on students’ college and financial aid behaviors, decisions, and outcomes.


The Innovation

  • CollegePoint uses interactive technologies like text messaging and screen sharing to provide virtual advising to students who otherwise may not have access to advising resources.
  • Our rapid-cycle evaluation informs programmatic strategy and decisions.
