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 means students can get their scores faster. 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™—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

Connections™ is exclusively for students who take the PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10 and SAT on a school day that lets students hear from nonprofit colleges, scholarships, and educational organizations. It delivers messages in the BigFuture School app and by mail from organizations that are interested in students based on information students, schools, districts, or states provide when taking an in-school assessment—including score range—to make connections that are relevant to students. 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 to be seen. The goal is to create more opportunities for students as they consider 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 plan their path for what's next.

The app is a convenient and efficient way to see my test scores, to receive messages from colleges, and news about things such as scholarships—and it makes it easier for me to find all the information I need in one place.

Student Participant in 2023 BigFuture School Pilot

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.
