For Parents/Guardians: Checklist for Back to School

For Parents/Guardians: Checklist for Back to School

As a parent/guardian, a new school year can mean new college terms to learn and deadlines to remember. With Scoir, we take the guesswork out for you!

Start the new school year off right—here are the top 5 things you can do in your Scoir account today to get ready for Back-to-School 🌟

What is Scoir?

We're glad you asked!

Scoir helps students discover and apply to colleges, and helps parents and guardians support their students through the process. Your student's school may use Scoir or you may have found us on your own; either way, welcome!

Here are the Top 5:

1. Create Your Account / Link to Your Student

First things first, be sure to create your free Scoir account and link with your student. 

Part of being involved in your student's college search and application process is getting involved—that's where your free Scoir account comes in! With an account, you can search for and suggest colleges to your student, explore Events and Posts from colleges, and more.

Parent

You can create your own free Scoir account as a parent. Check out our blog post, How to Get Started on Scoir as a Parent or Guardian, for more!

Once you've created your account, be sure to link your account to your student(s)!  Ask your student what email address they used to sign up for Scoir.


2. Conduct Your First College Search

Help your student begin their search based on what they're looking for—maybe that’s a major or academic program, campus size and setting, or extracurriculars—and get matched with colleges that fit your criteria!

Then, you can suggest colleges to your student with Scoir.

 

3. Download the Scoir Mobile App (& Allow Push Notifications!)

Take your college searches on the road—with the Scoir mobile app, you can access Scoir from anywhere, right on your phone. 

To download our app, head to the Apple App Store on your mobile device and click Get. Then, you can sign in using your Scoir username and password.

4. Sign Up for the Scoir Monthly Newsletter

With our family email newsletter, lovingly called the Study Hall Scoop, you can get monthly insights about what is going on in the school year/college application process, blog posts and podcast episodes for students and the whole family, upcoming events, and more. Subscribe today!

 

5. Share these Checklists with Your Student(s)

Want to help guide your student this Back to School? Share these checklists, with activities for each month of the school year to make sure your student is on track.

For parents/guardians with 9th and 10th graders, it's never too early to start! We have checklists for your students as well:

And there you have it! These are the Top 5 things you can do today to make for an extra great school year. If you’d like to learn more about Scoir and how we can help you, check out our guide for Parents/Guardians.
