College Ready Portal

The College Ready Portal (CRP) is a web-based college planning and Financial Aid matching service for counselors and administrators. The CRP can integrate FAFSA and state application data and match progress to individual students, allowing custom outreach and follow-up.

The College Ready Portal provides integrated email and text messaging allowing counselors to reach out to students who have not taken the SAT/ACT or completed the FAFSA, to promote upcoming Financial Aid events and to track progress and responses.
