For Parents/Guardians: Suggesting Colleges

Client Success Team Updated by Client Success Team

Parents have the ability to suggest colleges to their students. Suggested colleges appear in the Suggested column of the student’s My Colleges page.*

How do I suggest a college to my student?

To suggest a college to a student, follow these steps.

  1. First, click on the College Search tab.

  2. Click on Advanced Search on the left hand side of the page.

  3. Search for colleges via the college search tools available on the College Search page.

  4. Click the Suggest button on the college tile of the college you would like to suggest.

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.
