How to Login
- After downloading and opening the app, enter your School's name and search.
- After selecting your school, type in the email and password you use for Cialfo. You must enter the same email and password you use when you log into Cialfo on your computer.
Note: You also have the option of using our Google Single Sign On (SSO) option!
Viewing Your Dashboard & Editing Your Profile
Once you have successfully logged in, you will be led to your Dashboard. The Dashboard shows you the following details:
- Quick search- use the bar to research colleges. You have the option to go directly to School Search as well (to be addressed in this article later on!)
2. My Lists - Quickly view colleges in your Applying, Shortlist and Longlist.
3. College Visit - View any upcoming College Visits and sign up! If there are no upcoming events this section will not be visible.
4. Meetings - View the status of any upcoming Meetings! After you request a meeting, check here to see if your counselor has confirmed or if the request is pending.
5. Tasks - View all Tasks that have been assigned to you.
6. Editing Your Profile - select the "Profile" button found at the bottom and edit your information however you like! Do remember that currently, you need to input your Application Regions first inside Cialfo web in order to be able to choose specific colleges from those countries. We'll be updating that soon so you can do that on the Mobile App!
How to Use School Search
Find School Search in two ways!
As seen earlier, you have 2 ways of getting into School Search:
- Via Dashboard by clicking the quick link entitled "Search Colleges"
- Selecting the Colleges icon found at the bottom menu bar
Make sure that you have already selected Application Regions in your profile on Cialfo Web. Double check your Application Regions by selecting "Regions".
Once you've selected School Search, you will be led here, where you can see the different filters and regions you've selected and are free to choose from! You can also directly type the college name you're looking for in the search bar.
Click on any college to discover more information. This is also where you can add and save a college to a school list*!
*Depending on your school's Cialfo account settings, you may be restricted from adding colleges to your Applying list, Longlist or Shortlist. If you have trouble with adding a college to any of your lists, please check with your counselor.
Sending Inbox Messages to your Counselor
With the Mobile App, you can quickly send a message to your counselor using the Inbox function!
- Click "Inbox" on the top right corner on your Dashboard.
2. You will be led to your Inbox. Any previous messages you have had via Inbox will be found here.
- If this is your first inbox communication, you can send a chat to your counselor by selecting "New Chat" on the top right corner.
3. Choose your Counselor's Name.
4. Type up your message to your counselor and click send!
We hope you enjoy using the newly designed Cialfo Mobile App! Happy future planning!
