    • Beginning with the 2023-24 school year, the district will use SchooLinks to support students as they navigate their college and career planning process. Students received access to the new system the week of May 22, 2023, so they can begin exploring this summer. Students may log into SchooLinks through OneLink and then the Clever Portal. (This is the same way students accessed Naviance.)    

      The new platform gives students the improved ability to:

      • Take surveys and quizzes to learn more about their interests and possible careers
      • Research careers and watch videos to help navigate the college and career planning process
      • Explore information about colleges to learn about campus culture, student life, etc.
      • Learn about financial literacy and how decisions can impact students after graduation, plus
        scholarship matching, college application tracking, transcript requests and more.

    SCHOOLINKS AND THE COLLEGE APPLICATION PROCESS

    • Fort Bend ISD students are able to begin submitting all college application materials and request letters of recommendation using the new SchooLinks college and career exploration software.

      Although the SchooLinks portal is open, please know that letters of recommendation will be processed in mid-September. This provides time for the district’s academic staff members to return to their campuses, complete all levels of training on SchooLinks and have an opportunity to write more informed, personalized letters for students who request them. Please review your choice college admissions requirements as not all require a letter of recommendation. 

      We are aware that portals such as Common Application, Apply Texas, and Coalition for College open on August 1st for students applying for fall 2024 college enrollment.

      Rest assured that there will be ample time for colleges to receive students’ recommendation letters and have them on file for the admission review process.  

      Typically, early submission deadlines do not begin before October 1st.  

      As a reminder: access to Naviance will not be available after July 31, 2023.

    The CCR Center is located in the Library
