College Admissions Paperwork

Filling out college admissions and application documents can be overwhelming and confusing, especially when it feels like you don’t know where to start. Whether it is a general application or more specific documentation, paper or electronic, GSC can assist you with the process and get you one step closer to achieving your dreams. We will help you gather all of your verification documents, apply for your student ID, and even assist you in writing an essay that will set you apart from your competition.

Academic Advising and Class Registration

College course selection is overwhelming, and not everyone has a clear idea of what courses they need or when they need to take them. GSC can help you with this process. Our team will help identify what your educational goals are and prepare a college degree plan each semester that will help you reach and achieve those goals. Then, we will help you register for your classes with your personal schedule, preferences, and obligations in mind so that we can set you up for success. Each student will receive individualized one-on-one assistance because we understand that goals and dreams may change, as might a student’s specific major. We can help guide a student from taking their core classes to helping them make sure their prerequisites are met so they are set up for success. College offers so many different options, and GSC will be there every step of the way to help you succeed!

Financial Aid

An education comes with a price, and we want to help you find the aid to ease the financial burden. For local students, the first step in obtaining financial aid is filling out the FAFSA, or the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. GSC can assist you in filling out the FAFSA and finding and obtaining financial aid, whether this is through private loans or through subsidized or unsubsidized loans through  the government.


Scholarships are designed to help pay for educational costs like tuition, books, supplies, and housing and are usually awarded based on merit, GPA, achievements, or many other social issues, and they usually require that you maintain a certain GPA standing or meet certain requirements. Some students write essays to explain why they deserve the financial assistance that a scholarship provides, where other students are awarded scholarships based on financial need or personal hardship. Some scholarships might even come from organizations that want to support students in their community. GSC can guide you through the scholarship process, from searching for and finding available scholarships, guiding you in applying, gathering the necessary documentation, and even help with compiling an essay. We know that any financial help is welcome and appreciated, and we want to connect you with any opportunities that are available.
