Carmel, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/16/2013 -- The tough economy, coupled by a generally declining interest in schooling, makes going to college a little less of a priority among families and students. In the United States, only 3 in 10 public, and 1 in 2 private college students, graduate in 4 years. Of these, only 55% public and 65% private college students graduate in 6 years – resulting to higher education expenses. Moreover, 30% of students change majors after enrolling, costing each a minimum of $75,000 in additional college expenses and lost income.
In this regard, finding guidance and assistance services to ensure a worthwhile college experience is critical. Among other factors, navigating through the complexities of a college education requires experience, expert knowledge and financial capability.
Successful Education Solutions provides college education planning and consulting services for families in the greater Hudson Valley and across the United States. Since its inception in 2006, the SES team of college panning consultants has been helping families and students in the college selection process, covering everything from basic college essay help to getting ready with an ACT prep course or a SAT prep course.
Jeffrey Sonnergren, founder and President of Successful Education Solutions, says: "SES works closely with each of our clients to develop the best 'fit' between the student and their colleges of choice to achieve the goals of their education plan, and realize the best return on their education investment."
Successful Education Solutions understands that money is a big factor to deciding whether or not to pursue college. As such, the company offers college funding services designed for parents and students to assist with career choices, college selection and financial assistance. In order to gauge qualification for the college funding service, students go through a two-step process with SES. Called the Student Positioning, the process involves an Online Aptitude Test that confirms each student's career goals, and aids in selecting a major area of study to pursue.
Under the Student Positioning process, students and a family member also take part in an interview session with one of SES' professional career counselors. The interview, which runs roughly 90 minutes, is essentially designed to successfully match each student with the right colleges based on a set of aptitude factors, SAT/ACT scores, high school GPA, family financial situation, the student's educational interests, and general "outlook" on life.
