I do not have a Coalition account and need to create one.

In order to begin creating your profile, researching colleges, and working on college applications, you need a Coalition account. 

To create a new account, go to: https://www.mycoalition.org.

You are required to enter a minimum of your first name, last name, birth date, and email address before choosing a password.

Key Concepts

  • You can only have one Coalition account associated with an email address. Do not sign up for an account using a shared address.

  • Birth date is required because the Coalition platform is only for students over age of 13 years old based on regulations from COPPA (Children's Online Privacy Protection Agency. 

After entering information, a confirmation email is sent to the address you specified. Follow the link in that email to complete the account creation.

Who needs an account?

  • If you are a high school student or current college student interested in applying as a transfer, you'll need a Coalition account before you can work on and submit college applications.

  • If you are a school counselor or other student supporter, you'll need a Coalition account to collaborate and assist students.

What are the types of accounts?

When you initially sign up for your Coalition account, you'll specify whether you are a Student or Support user.

  • In order to apply for college, you must sign up as a Student user.
  • In order to be able to submit recommendations and other documents on behalf of students, you must sign up as a Support user.
