INFO FOR COUNSELORS
Help your students connect with ADVi!
Encourage your high school seniors to opt in through ApplyTexas. Students will need to provide consent when completing their ApplyTexas profile and start a freshman application to a two- or four-year college. Then, they should start receiving messages from ADVi within a week.
Once opted in, students can ask questions any time of day. If ADVi can’t answer a question, our team of highly trained advisors will reply. Our advisors are available between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. most weekdays and respond to student questions within 48 hours (usually much sooner!).
High school seniors will also receive proactive messages from us, reminding them about key steps and deadlines on the path to college. We’ll remind them about things like the FAFSA and TASFA deadlines, provide support for key steps like writing admissions essays and securing their financial aid, and make sure they take care of all those little steps (like vaccinations, housing deposits, and orientation) the summer before college starts.
If you, another supporter, or a younger student (ages 13 and up) want to connect with ADVi, text COLLEGE to 512-829-3687. This will let you ask ADVi questions any time, but you won’t receive proactive messages from ADVi.
