Advisor Toolbox

The Advisor Toolbox

Welcome to NCAN’s Advisor Toolbox. This area of our website contains information, tools, resources, links and templates that aim to help College Access and Success Advisors enhance direct service outcomes. The tools here address early awareness, grade level advising; financial aid; college awareness and application process; testing and college persistence and retention. NCAN has also implemented some tools to encourage year-round collaboration and learning. Our members told us that among the most important benefits of being part of the NCAN community is the opportunity to interact with your peers. The Virtual Learning Communities will help NCAN members do that through a web 2.0 platform where you can share ideas, effective practices and learn from one another through this on-line tool. Follow the link to learn more about the Advisor Virtual Learning Community.

Advisor Chats

Bi-monthly advisor chats are a meeting space for direct service practitioners to share best practices, how-tos and obstacles faced while working with students in the world of college access. Discussion topics include the college admission process, match and fit, and financial aid, just to name a few. For more information, contact Deputy Director Sara Melnick.
