Note: Some of the information requested in the College Profile Editor is not currently displayed on Encourage college profiles. With your help, we’re growing the value these profiles can bring to students by providing additional information and points of connection in future versions of Encourage. Some data points are not displayed in the Encourage profile but ARE used by our college match process to benefit students. In addition, some information is used in other tools such as Competitive Benchmarking within Insights Cloud, or for internal research. Lastly, some information in the Encourage profile may come from third-party sources.
