On Course College Consulting LLC was founded by Cynthia Seidel in 2017. She completed the Independent Educational Consulting Certificate program at the University of California, Irvine and is an associate member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association, a member of the Higher Education Consultants Association (HECA), the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) and the Seattle Area College Consultants. She is also a UCAS center for applicants to universities in the UK. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Honors Business Administration from the Ivey Business School at Western University in Canada and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Seattle University.
Coming from Canada, where university tuition is relatively affordable, Cynthia has a passion for illuminating and putting into perspective the financial landscape of higher education. She strongly believes that finding a good financial fit is essential, and enjoys helping families understand and explore their options for merit and/or need based financial aid as well as introducing international options for interested students.
The most rewarding part of college planning for Cynthia is getting to know her students and matching them with colleges where they’ll thrive.
