Counselor Portal (Slate.org) FAQs

What is Slate.org?

Slate.org is a free tool for school counselors, independent counselors, and community-based organizations may use to check on the status of their students' admission applications. It also allows counselors to easily and securely upload student application materials directly to colleges and universities.

How does Miami University use Slate.org?

Beginning with the 2020 application cycle, Slate.org will replace Miami's annual paper mailing that summarized the final Miami application status of your most recent graduating class. Instead, you'll have 24/7 access to this information online. You'll be able to check in prior to deadlines to see if your Miami applicants are missing any required items. You'll also be able to see your students' admission decisions after they have viewed them.

How do I register?

Visit Slate.org and click the registration link in the main toolbar. If you need help registering, contact Slate at info@slate.org.

How will this work at my school (or organization)?

You should coordinate with your colleagues to decide how your school will use Slate. One member of your school will be designated to manage permissions, and you can determine what other components of the tool you want to use. You can learn more about Slate.org functionality with this overview for school counselors. 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 transcripts (excluding the final official version), recommendations, and other materials students need to complete their college application.

Why would I use Slate.org, if my school (or organization) already utilizes Naviance or another platform to submit documents electronically?

We prefer to receive documents electronically – via the Common App, Naviance, Parchment, or a similar platform. Slate.org is simply another option to submit that information securely. If your school does not have access to electronic document submission, Slate.org will provide this functionality.

Who do I contact if I have technical issues?
