My College Lists
To access the College Lists, hover on Colleges on the main menu, and click on My College Lists submenu. The My College List section allows you to organize colleges into three lists:
- My Colleges: This list should include all the schools that will be applied to.
- Interested Colleges: This list should include all schools currently being researched and may potentially move to the My Colleges list or Not Interested list.
- Not Interested: This list should include all schools that have are no longer being considered.
Moving Schools & Ranking Schools
On the My College List page, schools can be moved between lists by dragging and dropping them. You can also rank your schools by dragging them up and down each list.
Note: After a school has been moved to a new list, it will remain their original color until the page has been refreshed.
Add a College
Colleges can be added to the My Colleges and Interested Colleges lists by searching for them in the quick add entry box OR by adding them after completing a Guided Search.
Start typing in the name (or part of the name) of a college. Best practice is to type in key parts of name, not using any abbreviations. Any school that matches your entry will show up in a dropdown list below the entry field - along with the school location. Select a school and then choose the appropriate button to add the school to either the My Colleges or Interested Colleges list.
The purple "view college information" button allows the opportunity to view the college information profile prior to adding it to one of the college lists.
View College Information Profile
To view the college information profile about any of the schools you can click on the info icon to the right of any of the school names.
A new browser window will open with all the information pertaining to that college:

Organization College Notes
To customize the college list even further, your organization college notes can be see by selecting the icon on the bottom left of the college list boxes. This provides an opportunity to quickly share organization specific information about the colleges. If the organization note is too large to fit in this quick view box, the full note can be see by selecting the information "i" in the upper right hand corner of this same box.
Note that these quick view popups can be closed by selecting the icon again or by using the X.
The List Summary submenu gives a full view of all of the college lists and the ability to add admissions expectations and keep a short note that will carry over to the application plan on each college. For more information about the List Summary submenu click here.
