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.

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

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

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.
