As a consultant, you may want to add a place on your existing professional website through which students can access their CustomCollegePlan accounts. If you contact support, we can provide you with a customized bit of HTML code, which may then be inserted into the code of your website.
The HTML code contains the basic elements necessary to add a form and have it bring students into their CustomCollegePlan accounts directly from your website. You may change the style of the form elements to match the look and feel of your website. If you're not familiar with working with HTML, simply pass the file off to your webmaster, and they'll know what to do with it.
CollegePlannerPro vs. CustomCollegePlan URLs
As a reminder, the login page for you as a consultant is different from that used by students. If you ever need to send a student to your login page, be sure you are providing them with the CustomCollegePlan domain.
- Sample consultant web address: yourcompany.collegeplannerpro.com
- Sample student web address: yourcompany.customcollegeplan.com
Linking to your site upon CustomCollegePlan account activation
If you have embedded the CustomCollegePlan form on your own website, there is a setting you can activate to include a link to that form in the email that goes out to students when their CustomCollegePlan account is created by you within CollegePlannerPro.
From the Dashboard, click the "My Settings & Preferences" icon. At the bottom of the far right-hand column you will see "Advanced Student Login Settings." Click the toggle to active, and enter the exact URL of the webpage containing the form.
NOTE: The setting described above should only be used if the login form itself is embedded on your website. If instead you have created a button that links to the CustomCollegePlan login page, do not activate this setting.
An example of the CustomCollegePlan invitation link with your own web address is shown below. If the setting is not activated, the link shown will simply be: yourcompany.customcollegeplan.com
