The Parent's Role in the Application Process

What is the role of the parent in the college application process? Our approach is to have the student become as independent as they can be throughout this process. This will help to prepare them for the level of independence they will need to be successful on the college campus. The majority of meetings and contact time will take place with the student and the college consultant. We understand that this process involves a number of family decisions and we are always available to address any questions or concerns from parents via telephone sessions, email correspondence, Skype and in person. It is important for our consultants to have parent input as selecting a college involves a lot of choices including distance from home and college costs.
