Hello Eagles!

You should have received an invitation to activate your Scior account, along with a tutorial  (UCPS) that includes step-by-step instructions. 

Scoir is a system that will allow you to research careers, learn about your strengths, explore your interests, research colleges, see how your academic profile compares to other EHS students and where they were admitted, register for college visits, watch videos from each college, track application documents, request letters of recommendation, communicate with your school counselor, prepare a resume, and much more!

Please do not request counselor or teacher recommendations in Common App, etc. you may enter your counselor or teacher’s name, but do not enter their email address as your recommendations will be submitted through SCOIR. This video provides helpful SCOIR student application and recommendation information https://vimeo.com/407576336.

As a reminder, official transcripts will not be available to send to colleges and universities until after the 10th day of the school year. This is to allow for the inclusion of all schedule changes, and new enrollments. We will announce when you may begin requesting official transcripts. If you are in need of an unofficial transcript for application information, check out your Genesis Account.

If you have already begun the application process on Common App or Coalition please reference the information below for working with SCOIR and those platforms.
