How To Articles

Adding colleges to the CSS Profile can sometimes feel like a daunting task, but with a little guidance, it can be a smooth process. As someone who has gone through this myself, I understand the confusion and frustration that can arise. In this article, I will walk you through the steps of adding colleges to the CSS Profile, along with some personal tips and insights.

Step 1: Log in to the CSS Profile

The first step is to log in to your CSS Profile account. If you don’t have an account, you will need to create one. Once you’re logged in, you’ll be able to access all the necessary features to add colleges to your profile.

Step 2: Navigate to the College List

After logging in, navigate to the section of your profile where you manage your colleges. This section is typically labeled as “College List” or something similar. Click on this tab to proceed.

Step 3: Search for Colleges

Once you’re in the College List section, you’ll see an option to search for colleges. This is where you can start adding the colleges you’re interested in. Use the search bar to type in the name of the college you want to add.

Pro tip: If you’re unsure about which colleges to add, it can be helpful to create a list of potential schools before you start the search process. This way, you’ll have a clear plan and won’t overlook any colleges that interest you.

Step 4: Select the Right College

After searching for a college, you’ll see a list of options that match your search. Take your time to carefully select the correct college from the list. It’s essential to choose the right college to ensure that your CSS Profile is accurately linked to the correct institution.

Personal experience: I found it helpful to double-check the college’s name, location, and other details before selecting it. This extra attention to detail can prevent any mix-ups or confusion down the line.

Step 5: Add the College to Your Profile

Once you’ve selected the college, you’ll see an option to add it to your profile. Click on this option to include the college in your CSS Profile. You may need to provide additional information about that specific college, such as the program or major you’re applying to.

Personal tip: Make sure to review the information you’re entering to ensure its accuracy. Small mistakes can cause unnecessary delays or complications in your application process.

Step 6: Repeat for Other Colleges

If you’re applying to multiple colleges, you’ll need to repeat steps 3 to 5 for each college you want to add to your CSS Profile. Take your time and be thorough to ensure you don’t miss any important colleges.

Personal insight: I found it helpful to create a checklist of the colleges I wanted to add and tick them off as I completed each one. It helped me stay organized and ensured I didn’t accidentally leave out any schools.


Adding colleges to the CSS Profile doesn’t have to be a stressful process. By following these steps and incorporating some personal tips and insights, you can navigate through the process smoothly and accurately add the colleges you’re interested in. Remember to double-check all the information you enter to avoid any mistakes or delays. Good luck with your college applications!
