High School / CEGEP Counsellors

EducationUSA is funded by the U.S. Department of State with the goal of helping students, parents, and Guidance Counsellors understand the U.S. university application process. EducationUSA is a completely FREE service. We exist to assist you, and we hope that you take advantage of our services.

Ways that EducationUSA can help Guidance Counsellors:

All of our print resources are housed on our Resources page. If you would like posters for your office or printed brochures and documents sent to you, please email your request to ottawa@educationusa.info.
Request an EducationUSA presentation at your school
EducationUSA is located in Ottawa. If you are outside the Ottawa area, we will likely accommodate you with a virtual presentation. However, we do travel often, and if you submit a presentation request, we will prioritize coming to your school when we are in your area! We can give presentations on any part of the application process to counselors only, students and/or parents, or all of the above.
1:1 Student Advising Sessions
Encourage your student to connect with EducationUSA with in-depth questions about applying to U.S. schools. Click here to set-up a 30 minute advising session via phone, Skype, or in person (Ottawa region only).
Follow us on social media!
We have great daily tips and we will follow back. Find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn.
