Filling out your profile

  • Updated
  • When you first create an account in DecidED, we just ask for your name and email address to register.
  • After you confirm your email address, we will ask what grade level you are as a student. We ask this so that we can better understand where you might be on your college journey.
  • You can access your account profile at any time by clicking on the cube with the head and shoulders icon. This icon is located at the top right corner of your dashboard. From there you can:
    • Edit information for each section by clicking on the pencil button labeled “Edit”.
    • Change your name, add or edit a phone number, and change your email.
    • Change your email subscription permissions.
    • Add or edit information such as your GPA, SAT/ACT scores, zip code or ethnicity. 
      • DecidED does not currently look at your GPA or SAT/ACT scores but this may be something you’re interested in sharing with your advisor.
      • DecidED uses your zip code to determine in-state vs. out of-state tuition costs.
      • DecidED uses your ethnicity selection to share more detailed information about the diversity and graduation rates on campus.
    • If you are working with a counselor or advisor, they may invite you to join their organization so that they can stay up to date on your college searches and financial aid results. You can add or edit these organizations in your profile menu.

You can also delete your account. Remove your account from DecidED at any time by clicking on the "Delete Account" button at the bottom of the profile menu. You can also email us at if you want to make sure we remove any data associated with your account from our database.
