Zoom-In Workshops 

To support school-based and CBO counselors as they prepare students for post-secondary studies, TACAC is rebranding Drive-In Workshops as Zoom-Ins for the 2023-2024 school year! No more worries about traffic or tight schedules, just hop on your computer and listen in. You'll gain information from seasoned professionals in order to better assist students with selecting a college, navigating the application process, and more! We plan to host four Zoom-Ins throughout the year, each with a topic pertinent to the time of year and/or the current landscape of college admissions. 

Upcoming Workshops:

March 6 - Change of plans!

In response to the ever-changing nature of the FAFSA and the delay of financial aid packages this year, we are not ready to proceed with our planned presentation. While we are canceling our March 6 drive-in/Zoom-in, there are two other great options to get the same information at no cost. Please check out Hofstra's program Financial Friday: How to Review a Financial Aid Package on Friday, March 8 at noon EST and/or uAspire's Financial Aid Offer Review on Tuesday, March 12 at 2:00 p.m. EST. Thank you for understanding.

Call for Presenters:

Have a favorite topic or idea that you'd like to share with others? Want to collaborate with a colleague to share some tips? Looking for a new opportunity to grow professionally? Zoom-in workshops might be just the place for you!

Previous topics have included (but are not limited to):

  • financial aid and FAFSA completion
  • holistic review in college admissions
  • the role of letters of recommendation
  • NCAA guidelines and recruitment tips
  • ideas for helping students craft a great essay
  • how to manage your caseload, high school profiles
  • resources for counselors, organizing a college fair
  • having difficult conversations
  • sending your artists to college
  • working with different populations of students

If you have an idea, there's a chance someone else could benefit from learning more about it so we're open to hearing from you! If you'd like to work with us (even if you don't have a specific idea), please email [email protected]
