A. Registration; College Match Program
In order to access certain portions of the QB Website and to use certain services provided therein, QB may require you to register either directly with QB or through one of its service providers. These services include, but are not limited to, our National College Match program which offers you an opportunity to be matched with one of our partner colleges or universities for early admission and a full scholarship (the "College Match Program"), and our College Prep Scholars program for high school juniors (the "CPS Program"). In order to participate in either our College Match or CPS Program, you must first register and create an online account with QB through our application site. To create an account, you will be asked to create a username and password and to provide information such as your name, address, phone number and e-mail address on the registration form.
Choosing Your Username and Password
Your Username and password cannot be the same. When choosing your password, you should pick a non-obvious one that mixes at least six or more numbers and letters.
Maintenance of Registration Information
It is important that you keep your account current with your most recently updated registration information (including your e-mail) so that we can adequately provide you with our services. You may update your registration information at any time by accessing your account on the QB Website using your username and password. In addition, you agree to notify QB of any errors, discrepancies, or unauthorized activity that you discover concerning your account with QB.
After registering, you may begin completing the application process for the College Match Program or the CPS Program (the "Application Process" or the "Application") on the QB Website. On the Application, you will be asked to input personal information such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, birthdate, and current school. In addition, you will need to input certain family information, including your parent or guardian's names, addresses, contact information, and financial information so that QB may determine your eligibility for the College Match or CPS Programs. Furthermore, you will be asked to submit academic information such as your transcript and standardized test scores. You will also be requested to submit answers to personal questions and to write personal essays. For a more in-depth description of what the Application Process entails, please visit the "How to Apply" sections of our website.
Access to Opportunities
After you complete the Application Process, you may gain access to opportunities offered by our network of colleges, scholarship providers, internship program sponsors, and other organizations serving outstanding students ("Associates"). After a QB student enters an undergraduate program at a QB partner college or university, he or she may also qualify for future opportunities (e.g., internships, other scholarships) and potential recruitment by professional and graduate schools (e.g. medical school, law school, and Ph.D. programs) throughout his or her undergraduate tenure.
