Section 2.4: Accepting Counselor Recommendation and Transcript Requests

The process for responding to counselor recommendation and transcript requests is similar to the student contact request process.

request emails

The requests will arrive by email as well as notifications directly in your MyCoalition account. To accept a request:

  1. Click the View Request button in the student’s email. The MyCoalition login/create account screen at mycoalition.org will open in your default browser.
  2. Log in to your account. (If you don’t yet have a MyCoalition account, use the Create Account link to open one and then follow the directions below. See Section 1.1 Creating a Counselor Account for more information.)
  3. The student email takes you directly to the Documents page.

    the Documents page

    The Documents page lists all of the application document requests—and their status—that you have received in the current admissions cycle. It can be sorted ascending or descending by type, status, request date, student name, or student email. You can also use the search box to find the request you are looking for. (Note: if you are already working in MyCoalition, another way to get to the Documents page is to click Documents in the top navigation and select Home from the drop–down list.)
  4. Find your student in the list and click the Start button of a Counselor Rec document type to begin a counselor recommendation or click an Upload button to fulfill a transcript request. See “Section 2.5 Using the Documents Page and Counselor Recommendation Form” in this manual for detailed information about completing the Counselor Recommendation Form and uploading transcripts.
