Tags allows counselors to share their knowledge about institutions with students, and also groups institutions that share common characteristics. Only district account managers can create and update or delete tags, but district or high school account managers can add and remove tags from institutions. Students, counselors, and high school and district account managers can view tags.
To create a new tag, district account managers will navigate to specific college page by using the Resources top navigation and choosing Colleges from the dropdown menu.
On the University Search page, find at least one institution for which you want to apply a new tag, using either the University Name search bar, or filters. Select that institution by clicking on the name.
On the institution page, you will now see a Tags section. To create a new tag, click on the +Add a Tag button
District account managers will have the option to apply a preexisting tag, or create a new tag. To create a new tag, select the +Create a New Tag option from the dropdown
