Our application pulls school names from the Department of Education's website and only lists accredited schools in the United States.
If your U.S. school is accredited but is not listed, then it may be due to the following issues:
- Once you start typing your school's name into the request, there should be a drop-down list of options to choose from. If this isn't happening, then the issue may be the device or web browser you're using. We recommend trying on a different device, and make sure that you're using a fully updated web browser (preferably Google Chrome).
- If you're seeing a drop-down list of options but your school still isn't listed, then it may be the way you're typing in the name of your school. Since our request pulls names from the Department of Education's website, the way you type in your school name has to match exactly. Try Googling the name of your school to determine the exact spelling and punctuation that your school utilizes and try typing it in that way.
- Note: If you took College Start courses through Sophia, then you are not able to select that school name in the application. You can just select "Other" in order to move forward and your coach will work with you to send your official Sophia transcripts directly to the university.
If you're still not seeing the name of your school (either because it is not accredited or is not located in the U.S.), just select "Other" from the list in order to bypass that section and move forward in your application. Then, once you submit your application and your transcripts, we'll be able to edit your application to have the correct school name.
