Click on the [Add College or University] button.

  • Enter the country, state and a distinctive part of the college or university name, and a list of matching institutions will appear.

Entering Attendance Dates

These must include FUTURE coursework dates too, if applicable!

  • Including Future Coursework: If you will take coursework in the future, you must list your end date as that future term.
    • For example, if you attended The University of Texas at Austin since Fall 2021 and you will be taking courses through Spring 2025, your attendance dates would be: Fall 2021 - Spring 2025.
  • You may make revisions to this section any time during the application process. You will be able to add new colleges/universities as well as newly completed coursework.
    • Send an internal message within the application listing any changes needed to your colleges attended, terms attended, or college coursework pages.
