A set of application milestones that are specific to a college can be created by an advisor. This set of milestones will become the default application plan when a student adds the college to their My Colleges list.
If a college does not have college-specific application milestones created, then the organizational configuration defaults will apply to that school when an application plan is created.
Create College-Specific Application Milestones
From the Advisor Shortcuts submenu (dropdown under your name in the upper right), in the Work with Colleges section, select "Create College-Specific Application Milestones"
On the College-Specific Application Milestones page, type in the name of the school to work with.
Customize the Milestones
- Click on the "Add Milestone" button to add new milestones.
- Select a milestone, then click on "Update Milestone" to modify it and add a description.
- Select a milestone, then click on "Remove Milestone" to delete it.
- Modify an existing milestones by clicking on it and adding a description.
Copy your customized application milestones to another college
Start typing the name of a college in the box. Select the correct school from the list of matches. Click on the green Copy Milestones to College button. The school you have copied to will now have its own set of college specific milestones.
Copy your customized application milestones to a tagged list
Select a tagged list from the dropdown. Click on the green Copy Milestones to Colleges on Tagged List button. The schools you have copied to will now each have their own set of college specific milestones.
Note: To update the milestones for all colleges on a tagged list, you must first customize one college by modifing the milestones, then copy that college-specific milestones to a tagged list.
Create Organization Defaults for Application Milestones
If a college-specific set of milestones has not been created for a school, the organizational defaults will apply. See how to create organizational defaults.
Reset to Default Milestones
From the College-Specific Application Milestones page, to reset the milestones, choose the Reset to Default Milestones button. This will remove the "custom" application milestones for that college and change them to the milestones saved in the organization defaults.
