Even with a robust college and career program in high school, many students need continued postsecondary counseling support beyond graduation. For example, according to research, “summer melt,” the scenario in which high school graduates apply, are accepted, and say they plan to enroll in college but do not attend, is a common problem, especially when students do not obtain sufficient financial aid, do not meet administrative deadlines, or lack support from family or friends.

High schools may provide ongoing support after graduation, such as communicating with students in the months after graduation, offering logistical support (e.g., help completing forms), and emotional support (e.g., coaching). Once students have enrolled in college or begun work in a career, they may benefit from continued support, such as check-ins with their high school counselors, or more intensive intervention such as help with finances in more urgent situations. Schools should consider how they can provide these types of ongoing services to students in order to promote increased college graduation rates and success in careers.
