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 for the Match by mid-October (see Dates and Deadlines for more specific deadlines). Our college partners review the applications of the Finalists who ranked them and submit lists to QuestBridge of the students they would like to admit with 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.
