For Counselors and Community-Based Organizations

A culture of support and collaboration

We know what an important role school counselors and college advocates play in helping students navigate the college search process. The work you do is critical to our success as a campus. So, whether you're helping plan a visit, answering questions about the admission process, or the next step for when your students are admitted — and everything in-between — we are here to help.

I couldn't do my job without school counselors — it's such a vital role for the students, and also us here at IUPUI.
