LA Students

Important announcement

Unfortunately, due to changes in organizational resources and a reduction in funding, we are pausing Destination College services in Los Angeles for the 2021-22 program year. Students interested in receiving updates about any additional ScholarMatch resources that may become available later can sign up below.

Student Services

Through our Destination College Programs, we offer free college admission advising for US high school juniors and seniors who are the first in their family to attend college. From building their college list to making their college decision, we guide students through the whole process. For the 2021-22 program year, services will be virtual-only, and available for students in the San Francisco Bay Area. For students in other locations, we offer virtual college advising through CollegePoint.
