There are a few thousand college and university profiles available within CollegePlannerPro. The data within the profiles is sourced from College Navigator (U.S. Department of Education) and the deadlines are sourced from Peterson's. The focus of college profiles in CollegePlannerPro is more to provide a framework in which you can build up profiles that are helpful for you and your students and less about being a research tool.
Packed inside of each college profile, you’ll find helpful data like the 50th percentile graphs for ACT and SAT scores and common data set reports from College Navigator on graduation and retention rates, financial aid, admission, admission trends and GPA data.
“College profiles” versus “Student’s College profiles”
Each college or university within CollegePlannerPro has its own profile page. When a school is added to a Student’s list, a separate college profile page is then created for that Student. This new profile can contain specific tasks and deadlines customized for the Student. Each student has his/her own profile of a college, so depending on the number of Students you have with a specific school on their list, numerous college profiles may exist for a given institution.
The “Main” College profile
There are four distinct screens to choose to view: College Profile; Students, Deadlines & Requirements; Notes & Tags; and Degree Programs.
In addition to information on admissions and financial aid, you will find ACT and SAT graphs depicting the 50th percentile ranges for enrolled students and College Navigator reports. High School Grade Point Average (GPA) information will be displayed for those schools that participated in the Common Data Set GPA survey.
Students, Deadlines & Requirements:
On this screen, all students with this college on their list will be shown along with their graduation year. The deadlines we source from Peterson's will appear here. You have the ability to verify the deadlines are correct or report any inconsistencies you may find. This screen is also where you can add any custom Admission Deadlines and enable both the Core Application Requirements and the Other Requirements. See How do I add Application Deadlines from College Profiles?
Notes & Tags:
On this screen you can manage the Tags you would like associated with the school. For more information on tags, please see the article What is a College Tag. This is also where you can enhance the profile for the school by adding a Note. Notes provide a simple, yet fast way to build up your own data for a college or university. This can be either private (to be seen by only you) or shared (for all of your students to view). Please refer to the article entitled What are College Profile Notes?
This screen includes the degree programs listed by major based on information from College Navigator.
The “Student’s" College profile
When a Student has a college added to their “Suggested College List” or if they’ve added the college to their own “My College List” within CustomCollegePlan, a new profile is created. To access a Student’s college profile page, first go to the Student's profile page, then click a school in a Student’s college list. For example, if Duke University is on a Student’s Suggested College List, by clicking on the school in the list, you’ll be taken to the Student’s college profile for Duke. Once at their profile for a specific college or university, you may begin customizing a profile for the Student. You can set the Admission Probability here. Both you and your Student can add notes. Additionally, you may customize deadline or application requirement information for the specific student.
