College Advising Corps-
Boston University

The College Advising Corps-Boston University (CAC-BU) seeks to increase the number of low-income, first generation, and underrepresented students entering and completing college.

To achieve this mission, CAC-BU places well-trained recent college graduates into under-served high schools to serve as near-peer AmeriCorps college advisers. CAC-BU college advisers work within their school placements to promote a culture of college attendance and to increase educational opportunities for all students. College advisers assist students with completing college applications and applying for financial aid; advisers are committed to helping each student find his or her “best-fit” institution.

College Advising Corps – Boston University (CAC-BU) currently has 36 advisers serving in 32 high schools across Boston, Lynn, Malden and Somerville–including every Boston Public high school.
