- Under Colleges, scholarship programs, and other institutions are looking for students like you, click Yes if you'd like to share your information with colleges, or click No if you'd rather not. Here’s how it works: Once you say we are allowed to do so, we will make some of the information you provide to Parchment available to a variety of colleges and programs. Then the colleges and programs send you information about themselves, so you can see if they fit your college plans. Colleges cannot find you at Parchment unless you choose to opt-in.
- If you're under 18, you must check the box to confirm that you have your parents' permission to create the account.
- Click Let’s go!
- If you chose to share your information with colleges in step 3, you will have one more step where you will enter your contact and academic information.
