  2. Click 'advanced search' on the left hand side of the page.

    • Make sure to select the "Name:" result to receive a list of college tiles you can suggest from.

Once a college is suggested, the student may act on it from the Suggested column of their My Colleges page. The status of suggested colleges are visible to parents on the Suggested view within the context of the student.


* Please note that once a college has been suggested, it cannot be un-suggested, and action must be taken by the student.
