Cincinnati, OH, December 02, 2020 --(PR.com)-- Midwest College Consulting (MCC), a growing group of professional educational consultants partnering with college-bound students and their families during the college application and selection process, has earned new professional distinctions. Dana Rolander, the founder of MCC, has earned the designation of Certified Educational Planner, and has hired a new associate, Jennifer Moriarty.
Rolander is one of a small group of less than two hundred Certified Educational Planners (CEP) in the country. It is a designation awarded to consultants who meet stringent application requirements, including a Master’s degree, specialized training, significant professional experience and involvement in professional activities and organizations. Rolander was awarded this title after passing a board certified examination, covering both institutional and professional knowledge, and signing a pledge to adhere to stringent ethical practices. She will be recertified every five years on the basis of college visits, continuing education hours and other professional endeavors. There are many independent college professionals throughout Cincinnati, but Rolander is the only one with the CEP credential.
To further her mission to help high school students find their “best fit” schools, Rolander has hired Jennifer Moriarty as an independent college professional. In her role, Moriarty will support Rolander in counseling college-bound students on the admissions process. Moriarty joins Rolander also as a member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association and Ohio Association for College Admissions Counseling. Like Rolander, Jennifer is a graduate of College Counseling Certificate Program from UCLA.
“It was important to me to grow my business with the best training and preparation process,” said Rolander. “The college application process is a complicated one. Families who choose to use a counselor deserve to partner with professionals who have undergone vigorous, professional training and are held to a higher standard of ethics,” she explained.
About the CEP Program
The CEP Program began in 1994 under the sponsorship of the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA), an association representing full-time experienced professionals in private practice in the field of college guidance and school/educational program placements. “The CEP designation assures families that they are working with a qualified professional who is committed to maintaining the highest quality of service to their students,” said Mark Sklarow, Executive Director of IECA. Information on the CEP program is available through the American Institute of Certified Educational Planners, 1538 Adams Street, Denver, CO 80206, www.aicep.org.
