Paying for College

We help families demystify the financial aid process. Many of our students get great scholarship offers from the colleges they apply to including full-rides. Additionally, we help students target specific scholarships from the thousands available.

Scholarship areas include:

  • College specific scholarships
  • Corporations
  • Non-profit organizations
  • Private donors

We will help students apply for scholarships and get money to help them pay for their college education. With college so expensive today, it is important that students take advantage of every financial opportunity available.

Additionally, many students and parents think that money is only available for top performing students. This is not true as there are thousands of scholarship opportunities available, which include criteria that is outside of students’ academic performance.

Let us help you get money for college so that you can go to the college of your dreams.

Thank you for all of your help! We really appreciate it. You showed a sincere interest in helping our daughter through the college planning and application process. We saw counselors before you and you stood out. You spent countless hours with us and you were very personal which made all of the difference. Additionally, you were always available to discuss and engage to make sure our daughter stood out. You definitely show a true care for helping your students and it shows it all that you do. You were fantastic and the results were more than we could have ever imagined. Thank you!

Strategic College Consulting with Dr. Jeff Haig was invaluable for our college admission process. Dr. Haig introduced colleges that were not on our radar that made it to the final list. He provided structure and much needed organization to the complicated college application process that ensured all requirements were met. His diligent review of the application documents, reference letters, and essays assured that my applications were submitted and were competitive. I highly recommend Jeff Haig with Strategic College Consulting!

The college application process is complicated, competitive and anxiety ridden. The best thing you can do for yourselves and your student is to retain Jeff Haig to guide you through the process. He is an invaluable resource that will make the difference in your student's college choices!

As we started looking into the college application process, we realized that things had changed so dramatically since we had gone to college that we needed help! Jeff provided such professional and strong advice that not only led our daughter, Lauren on the path to achieving admission and scholarships to almost every school she applied, but also achieving admission to USC's journalism program which is #1 in the nation. Jeff provided guidance to Lauren in determining her interests and chosen major, applying to and being accepted to premiere summer programs, test preparation, high school curriculum choices, extra-curricular activities, and more. When it came time to actually prepare her applications, Lauren had done all the leg work necessary to prepare those applications under Jeff's guidance.

As parents, Jeff gave us the peace of mind to know that we were doing all we could to help Lauren achieve her goals. We didn't want to merely hope we were doing it all correctly only to learn later what we should have done. Jeff saved us hours of anxiety and uncertainty. We knew she was in good hands. Our second child is now a sophomore and we look forward to beginning the process all over again with Jeff's guidance. We whole-heartedly recommend Jeff to all of our friends who are seeking college counseling assistance. Every friend who has met with Jeff has retained him. There is no one better!

Jeff helped me find a college that was a great fit for me. It was a pleasure working with him--he guided me every step of the way through the daunting college admissions process. I have grown a lot through that process, which has helped me find my true self and what I'm capable of.
