WiseChoice has developed a comprehensive college planning, financial aid and career exploration platform designed to have scalable impact in improving educational outcomes across the country, including increases in enrollment and persistence/graduation rates and reductions in student indebtedness after college. The online WiseChoice system and tools are available to guide and inform students and their related stakeholders, including counselors and student-serving organizations. All aspects of planning for college, generating lists of “best fit” schools, managing applications and campus visits, exploring career interests and options, estimating and applying for financial aid and winning scholarships are included in the WiseChoice website. WiseChoice recommendations are personalized for each student based on powerful matching algorithms and the information provided in a data-driven series of interactive assessments. Additionally, WiseChoice offers online administrative reporting and student management tools to education professionals who choose to guide their students through the online system.
