For Students: Discover Colleges

Client Success Team Updated by Client Success Team

Building a tailored college list begins with discovery 🕵️ Here, we breakdown the multiple ways to search and match with colleges in Scoir!

Searching for Colleges

Whether you're doing a quick search or diving into advanced searches, you'll find a lot of functionality!

If you already have a certain college in mind, begin typing the name in the search bar. Once the name appears, click it to go the College Profile.

The search bar will save your recent searches and show you other colleges you may like as well. Save colleges to My Colleges by clicking the icon on the right side of the college name.

Advanced search and filtering

Narrow down your search and get a list of colleges that meet specific criteria by using filters. Access filters by navigating to Discover or using the search bar. Choose a pre-populated filter to get started. 

From here, you’ll see the 5 most popular filters in the top left navigation. Click the filters you want to set based on your preferences, and a drop down will appear with your options.

Select “All Filters” to see additional options like Personal Interests & Activities, ROTC Programs, Test Scores & Admission Rates, Athletics, Application Method, and more.

Once you've chosen your filters, the resulting list of colleges will default to sort by relevance. You can easily change the sort by selectivity (admissions rate) or by size.

Add the colleges you’re interested in to your list by clicking “Follow.” You can also choose to compare up to 4 colleges at a time and see a side by side view of what they have to offer. Colleges with the option to Apply directly through Scoir will allow you to get started from here as well.
