You can add a college to My Colleges list various ways: from your Student Dashboard, College Search, College Details Pages, or directly from within My Colleges.

You can set the Acceptance Likelihood of a college via the Set Acceptance Likelihood link on the college tile and within the expanded card view.

My Colleges is broken up into five distinct columns. Depending on their state, college tiles can be moved from one column to another.

Applied

How do I let my counselor know I’m applying to a college?

Once a college is moved to the Applied state, your assigned counselor will be notified in Scoir, and will know to send documents on your behalf.

Please ensure that you have submitted your application via your preferred method before marking a college as applied.

We understand that every school is different. If your school has a specific procedure for the college application process, please make sure to communicate with your counselor how to go about notifying them directly.

Once you mark a college as Applied, you will be prompted to provide additional information including specific major selection when adding a college to this column.

To provide a specific major, select Yes in the Did you apply for a specific major section, then search for the major via the major search bar.

College tiles in Applied will display deadline information pertaining to your chosen application type, as well as college checklist completion rate and the status of required documents to be sent by your counselor.

Additionally, college tiles in Applied will display application outcome information pertaining to your chosen application type.

Colleges in the Applied column cannot be removed. Colleges can be quickly added to this column by clicking + Add a College.

If your high school has enabled the Pending Acknowledgement feature, you will not be able to move colleges into Applied until they have been acknowledged by a counselor.

Why Should I Add Top Choices My Schools?

Your list might have a lot of schools and choosing your top choices will help you to better keep track of the schools that you are most interested in. This might also help you to stay on top of important deadlines, messages, or meetings with the school.
