The “Suggested College List” is a list you’ll create for each student client you work with. Your students will view the schools on the Suggested List and they can then elect to move a copy of the school to their own “My List of Colleges.” For more on the “My List of Colleges” see the article, “What is the Student’s 'My List of Colleges'?”. The schools on the Suggested College list are managed by you (the counselor).
While you are in the process of creating the "My Suggested Colleges List", you may choose to have the list not viewable by the student. You may determine "when" the student sees the Suggested List by managing the "Account Settings" on the student profile. For more information, check out the article, "How do I modify what Students can see in their account?"
