For Parents/Guardians: Viewing College Profiles

Mike Updated by Mike

Summary

A college’s profile contains all of the information available for a college on Scoir, and is broken into five main sections: Overview, Academics, Admissions, Cost & Aid, and Student Life. Virtual tours powered by YouVisit are also displayed at the top of the page (where available).

Overview

The college profile overview section contains general information about the college’s size and type, as well as their average net price. If the college has available sessions, they will be displayed here as well, above the location and nearby transportation tile. Additionally, similar colleges will be displayed in their own adjacent tile to promote discovery of related institutions.

Academics

The academics section highlights degree offerings, popular majors, and other noteworthy details about the college’s academic programs. There is also a filterable fields of study list that contains every course available in the college’s catalog.

Admissions

The admissions section contains admitted student statistics such as acceptance rate and average standardized test scores. It also includes important information about application deadlines and details relevant to the upcoming application cycle.

If your student is linked to a high school in Scoir, the Admissions tab is also where you can view historical scattergram data for a particular college by clicking the View Application Scattergram button at the top of the section. Scattergrams visually depict historical admissions decisions using previous students' GPAs and standardized test scores. As a general disclaimer, scattergrams are only intended to provide a guidepost to gauge acceptance likelihood and are not intended to be a definitive predictor of admission. To learn more about scattergrams, visit our guide.

Cost & Aid

The cost & aid section contains estimated tuition and fees as listed by the college, along with net price estimates and figures regarding the population of students who receive financial aid.

Student Life

The student life section contains student body statistics concerning enrollment, diversity, and campus life details, as well as the availability of ROTC programs.

If at any point you wish to suggest the college to students' My Colleges list, click the Suggest button in the profile’s header, or at the bottom of each section.
