Milestones empower students to take ownership over their postsecondary planning process. From exploring career options to building and managing college lists, milestones help students stay organized and keep track of key accomplishments along the way.
Where To Find Milestones
The active milestones students see will depend on their grade level, as well as any school/district specific customizations.
Each milestone includes details, instructions, and/or additional resources to help students meet that goal. Below is a breakdown of the information students may find.
To complete a milestone, click on the title or box.
The Milestone will appear on the left side of the screen. Below the title, students will find the link that directs them to the page to complete the milestone task(s). The description will include details (and if applicable, additional links or resources) about the milestone and what it means to successfully meet the criteria for completion of it. There are two ways milestones can be completed.
Once the student completes the milestones, they will see the drop-down menu for "Track Completion." Students should save any and all changes made to the completion status.
Completion of some Milestones will be tracked automatically. This is usually the case for milestones that are pulling data/information from the student's profile. The image below provides and example for a milestone that is automatically tracked. Students will notice that there is no option to change the completion status. (There is an option for students to indicate that they will not be completing the milestone. We recommend students check in with their counselors before selecting that option).
