CollegeStartOnline knows what to emphasize and how to present the information to make you the person that admissions committees want to accept!

CollegeStartOnline will bring out those traits and aspects of your academic history and personality that demand admissions committees’ attention.


Decide what type of engineering or computer science program you are interested in studying.

Though most universities offer broad-based curriculums, they may be well-known for certain specialties. Align your interests with those specializations.

The critical step to getting accepted to the college of your choice is to construct a college list that is realistic based on your GPA and SAT/ACT scores.

These programs are so competitive that CollegeStartOnline recommends starting early to construct your college list and visit those campuses.
