What is a 10 Hour Package?

Our 10 Hour Package takes the student and their family step-by-step through high school prep, the college search, and application process. We begin with an initial meeting to assess the student and their goals and continue to work with the student and their parents until they make their final decision on which college they’ll attend. This service includes 10 hours of consulting time for college application guidance, financial aid advice, or anything else you can think of.

Our time together will look like exactly how You want it to.

Take what You need

The 10 Hour Package is catered to fit each student, individually. It’s not a broad package that offers a lot of help and instruction on things you don’t need. It is a fully custom package.

Don’t know exactly what help you need?

In our first call, we will all work together to figure out exactly where you are in the process and make a plan to walk you through it. You will have a clear picture of what the process will look like for YOU moving forward and we will set the first milestone deadline.

The truth is, applying to college is hard and complicated.

But, it doesn’t have to be! With the 10 Hour Package, you can utilize your 10 hours on any of the services we offer….
  • Career counseling

Here's What People Are Saying:

“College Insights was the perfect resource to guide our daughter through the college selection and application process. Our daughter was resisting parental guidance and we wanted to avoid unnecessary battles. Our daughter worked with Elisia, who immediately gained our daughter’s trust, becoming receptive to ideas and suggestions that she needed to consider. Elisia helped compile a list of colleges for our daughter to apply to, and she created a comprehensive to-do list with deadlines for completion. This was crucial in keeping our daughter on ask and on time! We joked that this service was more of a gift for us as parents, since it kept the peace and kept our daughter on track ro applying for college. I would recommend College Insights to anyone trying to navigate through the college selection and application process.”
– Amy L.

“Having a professional work with my daughter was a life saver for her (and me)! Having a team of experts in essay writing, financial aid, and the accountability of deadlines made the process so much easier for everyone. We didn’t hire a professional with my first child that went to college. The second time around, I knew we needed help and it was the best investment we could have made. My daughter is now very happy at college and the process was so much easier and less stressful for her than it was for our son because of the support she had.”
– Jen S.

Meet Our Founder

Elisia Howard, M.A., CFAA, CCC

Founder and CEO, College Insights

As a leading expert in the realm of academic advising, college admissions, financial aid, and scholarships, my mission is to educate and aid students through the college admissions process beginning as early as middle school and extending through graduate school. Working in education for 17 years has afforded me opportunities to work with thousands of students from around the world. I’m currently the only Certified Financial Aid Advisor in the state of Washington, have my Master’s in Education, and I am a Certified College Counselor. I have done it all- from curriculum development to admissions, including five years as a university professor and leading corporate education at a large global company. After working in admissions for almost 10 years, I know the process inside and out. As a teacher, I naturally love working with students and seeing the look on their faces when something finally “clicks.” With college admissions, I find it to be even more rewarding because I know how much I’m impacting the rest of their lives. I love knowing that these students are not going to have to choose between paying off student loans, getting married, or buying a house. Watching a student succeed and enjoy their college experience because they chose a college that is right for them brings me joy. I love being able to provide students and parents with options they never thought they had, and making a difference in every way possible.
