CollegePoint Virtual Advising

Free, one-on-one virtual college advising for students nationwide


FREE virtual college advising for qualified students

In partnership with CollegePoint, ScholarMatch supports high school students across the US with free virtual college advising. Students are paired with their own College Coach the summer before their senior year. Their College Coach will work one-on-one with the student throughout their senior year to support them with the college application process. Communication happens virtually—via video and phone calls, text messaging, and email—as they navigate college tasks. 

How It Works

Apply: Eligible high school juniors are invited to apply here. Mention that ScholarMatch referred you.

Meet Your Coach:  Students are matched with a College Coach who works with the student via video, phone, email, and text for the year as they apply to college. College Coaches receive extensive college access training and belong to a robust coach community. Meet virtual College Coach Burcak, a volunteer from New Jersey.

Complete Your Milestones: Students work to complete the “College Ready Milestones” as they get ready to apply to college with the support of their College Coach. After finishing applications, coaches continue to support students through reviewing financial aid letters, applying for scholarships, and making college decisions.



Students are eligible if they meet all of the following criteria:

• Be a US high school student on track to graduate in the Class of 2022

• Have a GPA of 3.7 or higher

• Have taken or are currently enrolled in at least two college-level courses (AP, IB, or dual enrollment) within the first three years of high school.
