How We Can Help

EdMD’s unique process and most current data will help you in preparing and applying to colleges.

College Prep & Roadmapping

Roadmapping is the first step in your college admissions journey where we lay out the college prep process, step-by-step, into a manageable timeline as well as the roles and responsibilities for all involved. We also provide a list of optimal colleges and majors based on your student’s life goals.

College Applications

Based on your chosen colleges list, we will determine which applications are required: Cal State, UC, Commonapp, Coalition App or College Specific App. We then guide you through the actual application submission process.

College Essays

Some of the colleges you may have chosen to apply to may require either basic or extensive essays to be written and submitted as part of your application. We offer several levels of essay assistance based on the essay requirements.

Financial Aid

We will complete various first-year student financial aid application forms based on the colleges to which you are applying. The college you attend will determine which financial aid forms are required for your second year and beyond. We help with the FAFSA, CSS Profile, NCP, and Business Farm forms, etc.


Matriculation is the final step of the EdMD process and is required for each student and family to finish the process of acceptance and all that comes thereafter.
