In Xello, using the College Planning tool, students research the schools they’re interested in, build a plan, and then track the action items, deadlines and application progress for each institution using the College Applications tracker.

Students request to have a Recommendation Letter written and sent to the institution of their choice. And track the progress of their request and the subsequent Recommendation Letter.

Once they know which institutions they'd like to apply for, they request their Transcript be sent on their behalf, and can easily track that progress as well.

A guided request experience instills confidence and quality. Students are guided through requesting key documents like academic transcripts and letters of recommendation. Relevant tips teach students how to write high quality requests that can be sent, tracked and saved within Xello.
