Why Pathways?

Improve Options.

Improve your options of being accepted to the college/university of your choice. You can work with a pathways counselor to make yourself a stronger candidate over time to identify promising college options and to create the best application you can.

Save Time.

Don't wade through dozens of books and websites. Your pathways counselor can answer common questions and connect you with the resources you actually need.

Reduce Stress.

In addition to offering structure and clarity during this confusing process, your pathways counselor can also serve as a much-needed buffer between stressed out students and parents.

Step by Step Guidance Through the Financial Aid Process and More.

Your Pathways counselor will assist you with the completion of the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). If you live in Erie or the surrounding area, a pathways counselor will meet with you and complete all financial paper work; if you live out of state, this process will be done online. Your pathways counselor will complete all FAFSA paper work and forward it to you for approval and then submit it for processing to the federal government. All State Grant information for PHEAA will also be completed in a timely manner.

Rejected Students

Nothing feels worst than getting rejected by something you want really bad. In this case, I’m specifically talking about that dreaded thin letter you get in the mail from colleges you applied to. Most often thin letters like these always have some bad news. You open it, your heart skips a beat, and you get the bad news. “Thanks for your interest in XYZ university, we regretfully have to inform you that your application for admissions has been declined.” That college rejection letter really hurts, and it hurts more if you get one from every college you applied to. By agreeing to work with pathways, we will not stop until you have been accepted into a college or university of your choice. Here’s the good news, you still have options and we will continue to assit you.

College Acceptance: Know That You Are Accepted Even Before You Apply.
