GCAC Advisers (GCAC Advisers (2017-18) with UGA President Jere Morehead

Our Mission

The Georgia College Advising Corps works in underserved high schools throughout Georgia to increase the number of low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented students who attend and complete higher education. We help students find their way to college by placing well-trained, recent college graduates in high schools to work one-on-one with students as they navigate the complex college admissions process, including researching college options, completing applications, and applying for financial aid.

The Need

Our Impact

GCAC advisers transform lives and communities by leading students to college. 

Students who met with a GCAC college adviser during the 2016-2017 school year were more likely to apply to college, submit applications for federal student aid, and be accepted to college.
