The Solomon Employee Benefit Program
Solomon Admissions Consulting, the largest college admissions consulting firm in the nation, pools the knowledge and resources of the largest team in the country of over 100 former college admissions and financial aid officers. The benefit we offer employees of our corporate partners is designed to work with students from as early as elementary school, through middle school and high school, and up until adult education. The help we provide is on navigating the challenging college admissions process, as well as preparing the best long-term plan to pay for college.
Having worked with thousands of parents on college
admissions and financial aid consulting, we understand how
stressful the process can be on your employees’ time and
mental health. The national high school student to guidance
counselor ratio is 482 to 1, and we often see parents spending
hundreds of hours during application season on helping
their children with school and college and financial aid
applications. Our goal is to help your employees navigate the
admissions process with maximum knowledge, minimal stress and
effective use of time.
Benefits of the Program
The benefit we provide employees alleviates unnecessary stress and provides the following benefits for employees and for employers:
Increased Employee Productivity from less stress and time spent at work on their own or their children's complex college admissions process
Increased Employee Retention from having helped employees with one of the most important things in life - helping their child attend college and succeed in life.
Effective Recruiting Tool to attract the best talent. In an economy where hiring is harder than ever before, this unique benefit will stand out and attract.

Financial Aid Consulting
Our financial aid consultants, who are all former financial aid officers at universities, will work with your employees to calculate their Expected Family Contribution (EFC). They will advise your employees on opening tax-advantaged college savings accounts such as the 529 Plan. They will also advise your employees on filling out the FAFSA for federal student aid and the CSS Profile, if necessary, for institutional, need-based aid. They will advise your employees on how to successfully appeal their financial aid award if the award is insufficient.
Our consultants will advise your employees on a comprehensive list of merit scholarships at universities in which their children or they themselves may be interested. Our students routinely earn full-tuition merit scholarships such as the AB Duke Scholarship, the Cornelius Vanderbilt Scholarship and the Trustee Scholarship at USC. They will also help your employees identify private scholarships in the community for which they or their children may be competitive.
