Introducing BigFuture School

BigFuture® School is a new mobile app designed to spark students' interest in planning for the future. Available to students who take certain College Board assessments during the school day, it provides college and career guidance the moment they get their scores.

The Power to Plan—in the Palm of Students' Hands

The digital SAT Suite transition means students can get their scores faster. Now with the BigFuture School mobile app, they have a new way to access them. Once scores are available, the app provides students with:

Customized career information and personalized guidance about planning and paying for college.

Connections™—a feature exclusively for school day test takers that allows them to hear from nonprofit colleges and scholarship programs that may be a good match.

Connections Puts Privacy First

Available through the BigFuture School app, Connections™ is a free program exclusively for school day test takers that allows them to hear from nonprofit colleges and scholarship programs that may be a good match. Note: Districts and schools may choose not to provide access to Connections. With Connections, no personal information is shared with institutions unless a student chooses to connect and share information directly with them. This gives students and their families more control over when, or whether, they raise their hands and want to be seen. The goal is to create more opportunities for all students considering their options after high school. With input from students, families, and education professionals, BigFuture School and Connections will expand and improve to help every student get on the best path to college.

On average, students who choose to connect with colleges are 25% more likely to enroll, and 31% more likely to graduate on time from a four-year college. Those gains are even greater for Black and Hispanic students.
