MyCollegeView College Recruiting Service – How to Join
To sign up for our free college referral service, you just need to enter the information colleges and universities use to make their admissions decisions.
The MyCollegeView college recruiting service registration form requires your basic contact information (name, address, etc.), some academic information (you’ll be asked to enter your grade point average, ACT score, SAT verbal and math score, PSAT score, class rank, and any other test scores that apply). Then, to let the schools know whether you’ll actually be interested in what they have to offer, we ask for information regarding your educational goals, such as what type of degree you’re planning to obtain, when you expect to graduate, your intended area or possible areas of study, and any specific schools you would like to contact you through our college recruiting service. It’s easy, and it’s free.
Besides the college recruiting service made available through your MyCollegeView account, CollegeView provides several other free resources, including useful information and tools for the college-bound student. Our college search tool allows you to obtain information from our database of thousands of colleges and universities, cross-referencing by a number of important criteria such as location, student body population, degrees offered, religious orientation, and much more.
When you’re a MyCollegeView member, you can save the results of your college search and refer to them whenever you need to. If you’d like to be sent information from a college or university, or even a number of them, you can request information directly through MyCollegeView using our convenient “Request Info” feature.
During your college search, or while you’re gathering responses from the college referral service, you can find answers to all your college questions in our library of expert articles, organized into four subcategories concerning the application process, financial aid, campus life, and careers and majors.
In our Application Process section, you’ll find out everything you need to know about applying to the colleges and universities of your choice (including those that have contacted you via the college recruiting service): the application timeline and how to follow it, what college admissions offices look for in a candidate, how to choose the right college admissions essay topic, how to handle the college interview, and much more.
Once you’ve sorted through the colleges you’ve heard from through the college referral service, you, in all likelihood, still need to find out how to pay for your education. Our Financial Aid section provides the ability to navigate through the educational funding process, including information about all the different sources of financial aid and how to access them, how to decide upon the best financial aid package, and how to develop a financial aid timeline. You can also use our free service to help save time and money by searching for college scholarships.
When you’re collecting information from our college referral service, campus life is one of the most important aspects of each college that contacts you. Which activities are available? How do you adjust to college dorm life? How can you cope with the normal homesickness that accompanies what might be your first year away from home? You’ll find expert advice on these and other issues in our Campus Life section.
Deciding which degree path you plan to follow can be one of the most difficult choices the college-bound student has to make, and can play into which colleges contact you via our college recruiting service. You’ll find expert advice on making this choice, and how to navigate your way through the decision-making process.
