When students submit National College Match applications, QuestBridge reviews the applications and selects Finalists (see Who Should Apply for more information). We then forward Finalists' applications to our college partners for consideration.
All applicants submit their ranked list of the colleges to which they want to apply by October 13. Our college partners review the Finalists' applications and submit lists to QuestBridge of the students to whom they wish to offer admission and the Match Scholarship. QuestBridge compares the lists, and students are matched with the highest ranked college on their list that also selects them. A student can only match with one college. Through this matching process, it is ultimately students and our college partners that choose each other.
