California College Guidance Initiative

Right Plan, Right Tools, Right College

With the use of technological tools, we offer students, counselors, parents, and community-based organizations the resources they need to create successful college plans. These advanced planning tools allow students to take the steps necessary to prepare for college into their own hands and navigate their educational path with confidence.  

California's official source for college and career planning,,
is a one-stop informational resource for students considering their higher
education options.

Students can create individual profiles on the site, where they can store information relevant to each step in their own personal college planning process (which colleges match their criteria, offer the major they are looking for, etc.), as well as portfolio documents like letters of recommendation, resumés, and commendations or awards.

Tools on this site allow students to:

  • Explore potential careers
  • Search for colleges
  • Create a college financing plan
  • Prepare for tests like the SAT/ACT
