Counselor Resources

We offer you resources and support as you guide students through the admission process.

Compelling research to drive your students' decisions

The National CCAA annually commissions research studies by educational consultants and experts from member institutions to help inform our members’ work as enrollment and admission professionals in Catholic higher education. Historically, the studies have demonstrated the value and benefits of Catholic higher education.

Navigating financial aid and scholarships

Our financial aid and scholarships resources guide students and their families in discovering ways to make their investment more cost efficient. Students attending a National CCAA member institution can apply for the National CCAA Scholarship. Scholarships, each worth $1,000, are awarded to college-bound high school seniors attending one of our member institutions.

National CCAA Speakers Bureau

Our National CCAA members have a wealth of knowledge to share. If you're hosting a college or financial aid night, or need a colleague from the college side to present to your students or parents on a variety of college-related topics, our National CCAA members are here to help. If you're interested in connecting with experts from our member institutions for an upcoming presentation or workshop, please contact us with the details. Once we receive your request, we will reach out to our membership.

Please note: We will make every attempt to fill your request, but because our speakers bureau is a volunteer program, we cannot guarantee that all requests will be fulfilled.
