College guide for LGBTQ Students: For prospective college students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender,
or queer (LGBTQ), it is extremely important to find a college that will provide a
supportive environment where they can thrive. In 2015 the Consortium of Higher Education
LGBT Resource Professionals joined with 25 other organizations to request that optional questions related to
gender identity and sexual orientation be added to the Common Application used for
admission at more than 500 colleges in the US and internationally. The data would
facilitate more accurate statistics pertaining to LGBT students and could help administrators
better track their admissions, retention, and graduation rates.
