Occasionally you are looking for a college and cannot find it yet you are quite certain that it's profile should be included within your CollegePlannerPro account. If you don’t find a college that you’re looking for, its recommend starting with a piece of the name. For example, instead of typing in “University of North Carolina Chapel Hill” try typing in just “Chapel Hill.” In this case, less is more! You’ll get more results and hopefully can find the college that you’re looking for. It's best to modify your search using fewer words. The college name is dependent on how it is listed within College Navigator. The prime source of the profile data is College Navigator (U.S. Department of Education). If after modifying your search, you still cannot find the school; please let support know so we may assist you.
Here are some examples of modifying your search:
- You may be looking for a school with "saint" in their name. You may have to remove the saint as it could be listed as "Saint" or "St" or "St." Also the name could contain " 's " or just " s ".
- The school may be listed as a college instead of a university.
- Remember, type in less of the name - when looking for "The Citadel", remove "The" and type in "Citadel". This will locate "The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina".
- Sometimes, it just a matter of using the school's formal name and not it's common name. For example entering "West Point" will not display "United States Military Academy " yet typing in "military" will.
In some cases there are some schools that are not listed within College Navigator (international schools, etc.) and therefore their college profile will not be included within CollegePlannerPro. If you would like to add a college not found in the CollegePlannerPro database, please contact support.
