How to Use This Site

Grand View's admissions website is highly individualized and uses a PURL (personal URL).  Entering the site with your PURL will allow you to customize the site and have access to your own personal information as you move through the admissions process.

If you don't have a PURL, your first step is to fill out the inquiry form.  Click on My Profile.  Once you've filled out the form, the site will display photos, videos and content specific to the interests you indicated on the form.  You'll receive your PURL in an email within a day or two.

When you enter the site with your PURL, go to My Profile.  There you can make many selections to make the site your own:

  • Select the "skin" you see on the site.
  • Select your site guide or turn off the guide completely.  Explore this feature to see the three guides available.
  • Tag pages and other content as "favorites" that you can return to easily.
  • Find other extras such as Grand View backgrounds for your phone.

With your PURL, you'll also be able to see information that is specific y to your progress through the admissions process, such as what materials we've received from you and what you still need to send.  You can even find out your acceptance decision right on the site!  You'll see that the site changes and offers new features depending on your stage in the admissions process.

If you have questions about using the site or experience problems, please contact our web master by email or phone: 515-263-2846.
