Pending Acknowledgement

Actions described in this guide require the Account Administrator role.

Scoir allows high schools to have greater control over their students’ Applying and Applied lists through a My Colleges setting that requires students to first receive counselor acknowledgement before moving colleges into their Applied columns.

To enable the counselor acknowledgement setting, follow these steps.

  1. Navigate to the Account Settings tab of School Account & Settings.
  2. In the College Lists and Acceptance Data there will be 'My Colleges Settings section', toggle Require counselor acknowledgement of Applying to Yes.

Once enabled, students will no longer be able to directly move college tiles into the Applied column without each tile first being acknowledged by a counselor.

To acknowledge a college a student has moved into their Applying column, follow these steps.

  1. Navigate to the Colleges & Applications section of student profile whose college you wish to acknowledge.
  2. On the college tile, beside Application Acknowledgement, click OK.

You can also quickly access a filtered list of all students with colleges pending acknowledgement by clicking the Pending Acknowledgement count on the counselor dashboard.

If you are not logged in to Scoir at the time the student moves the college to the Applying column, and have email notifications turned on in your Scoir account notification settings, you will also receive an email notification when a student moves a college to the Applying or Applied columns as well. If you are in Scoir at the time the student does this, you will only receive an in-app notification in Scoir in your Scoir notification center.

Please note: you do need to have these notification settings turned on in your Scoir account notification settings and be the student's assigned counselor in Scoir in order to receive these notifications.
Colleges already in your students’ Applying and Applied columns will not be retroactively affected by enabling counselor acknowledgement. The setting will only apply to actions taken after the setting has been enabled.
