College & Career Advising for Special Populations
March 29 – April 30, 2021
This module, developed for practicing professional school counselors, pre-service school counselors, and college access professionals, includes six sessions that address the skills and knowledge required to help special population
students prepare for college and careers. Participants will be engaged in building knowledge and skills in several areas, including understanding and
identifying special populations, building support systems, academic planning and record keeping, postsecondary exploration, the college application process and financial aid.
Special population students, as defined by Perkins IV are:
  • Individuals with disabilities
  • Individuals from economically disadvantaged families, including foster children
  • Individuals preparing for nontraditional training and employment
  • Single parents, including single pregnant women
  • Individuals with other barriers to educational achievement, including individuals with limited English proficiency
Building a College-Going Culture for All Students
April 19 – May 21, 2021
This module is designed for school counselors and college access professionals to develop an understanding of their roles in developing a college going mission for all students. Additionally, the sessions help participants develop approaches for
communicating and working with low-income students, those who would be first in the family to attend college, and diverse populations to remove barriers to high aspirations and achievement.
During this module, participants will learn to:
  • Understand current workforce trends and the skills students need in order to enter the workforce
  • Understand how to work with students from different socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds
  • Understand and communicate the role of school counselors to gain support for the counseling program
  • Promote a “college-going” mission across school, community, and organizational landscapes
