Frequently Asked Questions


How much is this going to cost?

For colleges that sign up before September of 2020, the first admissions cycle will be free (through May of 2021).

How much time will it take to manage the platform?

College Engine is confident you can create campaigns in a matter of minutes and manage the platform in a nominal amount of time each month.

Do I need new staff members to operate this solution?

No. College Engine has done focus groups and received feedback from colleges that prove a campaign (search/query against the students in the platform) can be done in a matter of minutes. Based on how much time you then want to spend looking at the matched students will dictate how long it takes to operate the solution, but again, this can be done in a matter of minutes.


How much is this going to cost?

College Engine is offering up the solution for free for all students that sign up by June 1, 2021.

Does my information get shared with the Colleges without me knowing?

No, your personal information is kept confidential until you accept a connection request with a college. At that time, your information is only shared with that particular college.

How much time do I need to spend managing my account?

Our goal is to make it easy for you! Sign up takes less than 15 minutes. Management is really dependent on how many college connection requests you receive, but you can accept or ignore those in a matter of seconds.

Can I make changes to my preferences?

Yes, at any time you can change your preferences and other information associated with your College Engine profile.


Can I access my student’s account?

At this time, no. Your student is welcome to share their login information with you; however, you do not have the ability to create a profile and view your student’s information. College Engine does send an email to the parent at sign-up letting them know about the student profile creation and we also provide insight into the preference information that your student selected.

What information are you collecting?

College Engine collects information that is akin to the Common Application. It is basic application data such as student information, grade data, and test scores. In addition, College Engine has your student fill out their preferences in what they are looking for in a college so we can help match them with the right college at the right price.

How will Colleges contact my Student?

Colleges can only reach out to your student via the College Engine platform. They will make a “connection request” with your student and your student has the option to accept or ignore that request. Only when a connection request is accepted does a college receive the personal contact information of your student.
