Students & Families
We're excited about this because it
Frees you up to find your best-fit colleges
Boosts your application confidence
Maintains protection of your data
Spend time where it matters
When you're ready to apply to a Coalition college, enter the basic information just once, and we'll pre-fill information where we can to make it easier. Goodbye to entering the same info twice!
You're now free to spend more time on what matters most: finding colleges that fit your academic, social, and financial needs.
Apply with confidence
When applying to a Coalition member school via Scoir, you can feel confident that these schools have track records of providing responsible financial aid and supporting students through graduation.
The Scoir experience will be personalized to your unique circumstances, allowing you to see certain benefits that Coalition members make available, like fee waivers.
Your personal info stays personal
From discovery to application, your personally identifiable information (PII) continues to be protected by us. In keeping with the Student Privacy Pledge, Scoir does not sell, lease, lend, exchange, or otherwise share student PII with any third-parties.
The only time Scoir will disclose your PII is when you submit an application for admission to a college or university.
Once you're ready to apply, basic information contained in My Profile will be pre-filled when possible. You don’t have to waste time copying & pasting the same information into a separate portal.
Additionally, the Scoir experience will be personalized to your unique circumstances, allowing you to see certain benefits that Coalition members make available (e.g. fee waivers).
This allows you to focus on finding your best-fit college and reduces the amount of time it takes to apply to college once you're ready.
The Coalition for College is made up of more than 150 top colleges and universities committed to improving access to higher education.
Member schools work to make college affordable and ensure students graduate on time. Most students who graduate do so with little-to-no debt.
You can begin applying on August 1, 2022.
If you wish to apply to a non-Coalition college, your process and your counselor's remain the same. You will apply via the application method that makes the most sense for you, and once complete, you will update Scoir to reflect the submission. Your counselor will then send supporting application materials, as before.
- Personal details (name, address, DOB, etc.)
- Demographic info (ethnicity, citizenship, etc.)
- School info (address, CEEB code, etc.)
- Test scores, if applicable
Yes, you can edit all of your information, prior to application submission. Some fields will be pre-populated but we’ll ask you multiple times to verify that information before you initiate your applications.
Once an application is submitted, any edits made on Scoir for future applications will be reflected in those applications, but they will not be sent to those colleges where you have already applied.
Yes, you will be able to preview the full application.
To apply with Scoir, you will need to create a free account. Scoir is free for all students, whether you're using it in collaboration with your high school or independently.
No, you (and your counselor) can choose whichever application experience serves you best. For those colleges that do accept applications from Scoir, we recommend applying directly through the platform to save you time and stress.
