Protecting Student Privacy

We are committed to ensuring that students’ personal information remains private.

The College Board’s Access to Opportunity™ efforts are part of ongoing research to evaluate the efficacy of our college planning tools and their distribution. In order to protect the privacy of the students, as well as to ensure the validity of our research, we are unable to share with educators the names of students who receive these mailings.

In addition:

  • We will not provide or sell information about participating students to any third party without the student’s permission.
  • We will keep students’ personal information secure and confidential.
  • We will use this information only for providing free college planning information and improving our outreach materials.

Applying to two colleges instead of one makes it 40% more likely that students will enroll in a four-year college. When students apply to more than two, their chances of enrolling will be even better. Encourage your students to apply to at least four or more colleges – one safety, two good fits, and one reach.
