A Comprehensive Support System Designed for Every Phase of Your Higher Education Journey
IvyWise specializes in guiding students to their best-fit colleges, but, as higher ed experts, we know that the need for continued support and guidance doesn’t stop once students get to campus. The transition from high school to college can be daunting as students juggle college-level academics while learning to manage their time and schedules – often for the first time on their own.
Students have the challenge of completing their degrees on time while also planning the next phases of their journeys – whether that’s transferring schools, looking ahead to graduate, law, business, or medical school, or stepping out into the workforce. IvyWise experts support current college students through their entire higher education experiences – and beyond.
Services for College Students and Graduates
College and postgraduate life is exciting and full of endless possibilities for you to build a happy and successful future.

You’re in college – now what? This period is exciting, but you need expert guidance when deciding how to choose a major, career, and life path so you can graduate on time with a solid postgraduate plan. Learn more about IvyWise Academic Advising.
Transfer Admissions Counseling
There are many reasons why students choose to transfer schools during their higher education journey. The reality is, it’s not as simple as selecting a new college or university and enrolling, especially for students hoping to apply to more selective institutions. At IvyWise, we work with students to understand why they want to transfer, what they want out of their new school – academically, socially, and financially – and what it will take to achieve that goal. Learn more about IvyWise Transfer Admissions Counseling.
Graduate Admissions Counseling
For many students, the next step in their education or career is applying to graduate school. The graduate admissions process can take up to a year (or longer!) to complete, and with so many application elements to juggle it’s helpful to have an expert guiding you through the journey. Whether you’re applying to medical school, law school, MBA programs, or other graduate school programs, we have graduate admissions counselors who can help you prepare for what’s next and have the best chance of admission to your top programs.

We have a team of expert tutors, skills coaches, and test prep professionals who can help you develop proper time management and study skills, succeed in your college coursework, and prepare you for any graduate school entrance exams if needed. Our tutors are subject-matter experts who can help you raise your grades, prepare for midterm and final exams, and ensure you are on track to maintain your goal GPA throughout your higher education career.
