Who We Are

University of Connecticut College Advising Corps is an affiliate of College Advising Corps, a national non-profit organization that works to increase the rates of college enrollment and completion among low-income, first-generation college and underrepresented high school students. In partnership with AmeriCorps, CAC at UConn seeks to hire recent college graduates to serve as college advisers in high-need high schools. As members of a national movement, UConn College Advising Corps college advisers will help students in underserved communities realize their dreams of attending college.   

What We Do

Advisers help students make plans for life after high school. Whether it’s college, the military, trade school, or a career, Advisers help students identify what they want and how to pursue it. For college bound students, that means college applications and essays, scholarships, and filling out the FAFSA. Advisers also work with families and develop programs and events to get students excited about going to college and preparing for the next chapter in their lives.  

Where We Serve

  • Bristol Eastern High School 
  • Griswold High School 
  • East Haven High School
