Quadrant 2 - Academic History

Important Note Regarding Verification:

If your CAS uses Verification, applicants can't make changes to their colleges, degrees, and coursework from the time they submit until their application becomes verified. Once verified, an applicant can:

  • Add new coursework for new colleges and new terms/academic sessions
  • Edit existing colleges and degrees where attendance is “In Progress”
  • Add new colleges and degrees

If your CAS does not use Verification, applicants can’t make any changes to their colleges, degrees, or coursework after submission.
