We are very excited to announce that we are improving the current Student Dashboard with a brand new look to include reminders for tasks, sorting and adding of universities to My List, upcoming events, and much more! You can find the Student Dashboard on the left-hand menu for Students and on the same left-hand menu for counselors after selecting the student.
Browse Universities and Events
At the top of your dashboard, you can easily search for universities and events hosted by universities that you have added to your lists.
At a Glance: Your Applications
Underneath the Browse search bar, you will now see a graphical view of your applications, giving you a quick overview of your university application journey.
My Lists graph will display the current statistics of your 3 Lists: Applying, Shortlist, and Longlist.
The University graph will display a summary of all of your university applications and if they have been Submitted, Not submitted, or Others.
The Scholarships graph will also display a summary of recommended scholarships, sorted by University.
Under the Scholarship Target card, you will be shown the target scholarship amount and how much has been achieved.
*Do note that "Scholarships" refers to Direct Apply or Cialfo Scholarships. If Direct Apply is not turned on nor available for your school, this card will not be shown.
When hovering over the various data cards, more information such as detailed scholarship info will be displayed. Clicking on any of the bars in the cards will also redirect you to their respective pages.
Also, by clicking on the 💡 icon, you can see more information on the various cards!
An important aspect of your university application process is ensuring you are kept up-to-date on the things happening around you. Under the My Feed section, you will be kept informed of:
