What is a College Tag?
College Tags are keywords or terms you assign to a college or university. They are like bookmarks. By assigning College Tags to schools, you are able to filter through the lists of colleges. A list of colleges can be created with the criteria you are searching for. Tagging helps you access the information you have acquired on a college. You simply add a Tag to the College Profile and then when you need to access that information, it’s right at your fingertips. College Tags are your personalized labels; you are not restricted by outside resources. You are able to customize your college search based on your experience and knowledge.
