Dalian American International School

College & University Counseling

At the Dalian American International School, Counselors assist students with the research, planning, and application process for international colleges and universities.

The College Counselor is an essential resource for providing information and options for students to successfully research international colleges/universities that match their interests, abilities, and career goals. With the support and guidance of the College Counselor, students will:

  • Select appropriately challenging courses to prepare for international colleges and universities
  • Identify student strengths and weaknesses
  • Map out appropriate college/university testing requirements (SAT, ACT, TOEFL)
  • Select various careers and majors of interest
  • Identify criteria for selecting colleges/universities
  • Learn about the different types of colleges/universities
  • Complete college/university applications
  • Refine college/university essays and short answers
  • Prepare for the transition into college/university
