StudentAdvisor Groups are where students, parents, and education experts come together to get help, share advice, and discuss topics on all issues related to college. Once you are a registered member of StudentAdvisor and Groups, you can connect and communicate with peers, advisors and experts. After registering on StudentAdvisor and filling out your profile, you can join any available Group, suggest a new Group, or you may be automatically invited into a suggested Group based on your experience and interests.
To access Groups simply click the “Groups” tab in the main StudentAdvisor menu bar or bookmark www.StudentAdvisor.com/groups.
Please refer to our Terms of Service for more information on what is and what isn’t allowed to be posted in StudentAdvisor Groups.
To join a Group, you must be logged into your StudentAdvisor account and click the “Join Group” button under the Group description. If you haven’t already registered a StudentAdvisor account you can click here to join for free. [http://www.studentadvisor.com/#]
On the StudentAdvisor Groups page there will be a search box toward the upper right corner that says “Search Groups”. Search for Group topics or the name of a specific Group to find discussions and people that relate to your interests.
To leave a Group, you must first be logged into your StudentAdvisor account. After you log in, click the “Groups” tab in your Profile. The first page you see should list “Groups You’ve Joined” in the main window. Simply click the “Leave Group” link to leave a specific Group.
On the Groups page next to the search field there will be a text link that says “Suggest a Group”. Click this link to write an email to the StudentAdvisor staff with your Group suggestion.

‘Share’ allows you to email, send, bookmark, or share a Group, Discussion or Comment with others. A quick click on the Share link lets you also send it out to most social networking sites and RSS readers.
Anyone can read and review content on StudentAdvisor.com. But in order to contribute to our Groups, Conversations or Reviews, you must be a registered member and logged in to post. You are however, able to ‘rate’ or ‘like’ a Group or Discussion by clicking on our ‘helpful’ or ‘not my experience’ buttons without logging in. You can also ‘Like’ a Group or Discussion to Facebook without logging in as well.
Currently, there is no way for a member to delete a discussion. If you posted a discussion by mistake, or need edits made to the discussion, please contact customercare@studentadvisor and provide details and links so that we may assist you.
