What is Slate.org?
Slate.org is a free tool for school counselors, independent counselors, and community-based organizations to check on student statuses in the admission process. Slate.org also allows counselors to conveniently and securely submit application-related materials directly to colleges and universities.
How is Georgia Tech planning to use Slate.org?
For the 2019 application cycle, we hope Slate.org will be a helpful tool for you to upload documents, track your applicant’s status and receive notice of their decisions. Slate.org will allow us to convey a student’s decision to you after a student has viewed it.
How do permissions work?
One member of your school will be designated to manage permissions. Click here for an overview of how to get started. If you have previously submitted documents through the Common Application, you are pre-approved for a Slate.org account.
Which documents can I upload through Slate.org?
You can upload all transcripts (excluding the final official version), letters of recommendation and other needed materials.
Why would I use Slate.org, if my school already utilizes Naviance or another platform to submit documents electronically?
It is our strong preference to receive documents electronically – whether it’s through Common App, Naviance, Parchment or a similar platform. Even if you typically utilize one of these options, there may be times you find you need to submit a corrected transcript or other non-standard document. For those of you with other options, Slate.org is simply another option and a great way to submit that information securely. If you work at a school that does not have access to electronic document submission, Slate.org will provide this functionality.
