This year, NYSACAC will be combining our winter and summer institute and offering a new, free for members, virtual program for new professionals. The NYSACAC Institute for New Professionals will provide multiple sessions for the newest members of the profession within the college admissions and counseling field. This program will offer workshops with seasoned mentors on various topics relevant to today’s admissions and college counseling fields. We encourage anyone with 0-2 years of experience to attend.
