Parent Accounts on SCOIR

Once your student “invites” you to their SCOIR account (by entering your email), you will be able to view their profiles, see their college list, conduct your own college searches, and suggest colleges for your student to consider.  SCOIR also provides parents with financial tools so that you can get a better sense of the cost of attendance at various colleges during the selection process.
