Uploading School Details & School Profile

Below are the steps to walk you through how to upload the School Details and School Profile.

The School Details and School Profile are forms that are completed once and will automatically show across all Common App Applications in students’ Document Sending page when required by a University or College. Common App requires a School Report to accompany all applications.

For ideas on how to compile a School Profile, NACAC has a database of sample school profiles that you can check out

Common App’s School Report form has two parts:

  1. The first part is the School Details form you fill in once in School Settings which will be the same for all students in your school. 
  2. The second part of the form includes more student-specific questions. You will need to fill out the second part for each individual student.

How to add your School Details

Step 1: On your BridgeU dashboard, navigate to the School Settings on the left side. Next, select School Details and complete the form ensuring that you are filling in all fields.

Step 3: When you are ready to submit student documents, you will be required to complete an additional School Report form for each student. This School Report includes more student-specific questions which you can locate in the Common App overlay within each student's Document-Sending page.

Step 4: Once you're in the School Report form, the right-side menu indicates the different sections you need to click through and fill-out in order to successfully save the form. Once you have filled-in all of the required fields, you can click the green Save button. If you've successfully filled in the form with no errors, the status bubble of the document will turn red - which means it is ready to be submitted.
