How can matriculate help you?

Did you know that top ranked colleges are looking for students exactly like you?

Matriculate provides free remote advising from college students who can help you through your college application process. Advising Fellows are trained college students who can help with all aspects of the application process. 

You can connect with your Advising Fellow one-on-one through text messages, emails, phone calls, and video chat – whatever is most convenient. We can help no matter where you are or how far you’ve gotten in figuring out your college plan.

“I’m most worried about not getting into any college that I really want to get in to as well as not getting enough financial support... applying to colleges is very hectic for me since I'm kind of alone in the process.”
