The Common Core Standards continue to impact the state of College Admission Assessments. Now Aligned to the Common Core, the New SAT appears to be harder than ever, which will certainly impact student preferences and testing timelines with the old SAT ending next January. The ACT continues to make subtle adjustments, while the new ASPIRE test struggles out of the gate. PARCC and Smarter Balanced assessments are finally hitting the scene in markets across the country. And Online testing is right around the corner. Let's discuss what all of this means for your students and how to guide them through this time of transition.

NCAG membership can have great value for you!

NCAG Mission

Provide education and resources for college planning professionals, students and families.

Helping you help others

NCAG is accepting new members and is growing quickly. Membership is inexpensive, but the information that you gather and community that you will form will be invaluable as your practice continues to grow and evolve to meet the needs of those you serve.


The NCAG is a member-driven organization. We look to our members to take an active part in NCAG by electing board members, working on committees and doing presentations if they wish.
