Researching Colleges

With over 4,000 colleges in the U.S., there are numerous opportunities for each and every student.  The difficult task can be sorting through these options to find the best fit.  Below are a variety of search engines, lists, and rankings to help narrow down your search.

Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada - Information about facilities, services and academic programs offered by the 95 AUCC member universities as well as links, expert information, stats and deep content -- it's all here.

The British Council - In the US, we increase recognition of the variety of higher education opportunities available in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and facilitate institutional collaborations between the US and UK. Through transatlantic artistic partnerships, we introduce Americans to high-quality, groundbreaking creative work from the UK and our climate change programs support a network of young leaders who are committed to tackling climate change globally and in their own communities.

CollegeData - a website that allows you to search, compare, and connect with colleges and universities across the U.S.

Colleges of Distinction - Colleges of Distinction is a college guide with a unique approach. Instead of looking for the richest or the most famous schools, they ask about what really matters:

  • Nationally recognized by education professionals as an excellent school 
  • Strongly focused on teaching undergraduates
  • Home to a wide variety of innovative learning experiences
  • An active campus with many opportunities for personal development
  • Highly valued by graduate schools and employers for its outstanding preparation

Colleges That Change Lives -  Too often college choices are made based on false misconceptions, misinformation, or a lack of information—and these uninformed choices have led to higher dropout, transfer, and failure rates in higher education.  After much research, this organization began championing a small group of less well-known colleges for their life-changing success with students. These schools share two essential elements: a familial sense of communal enterprise that gets students heavily involved in cooperative rather than competitive learning, and a faculty of scholars devoted to helping young people develop their powers, mentors who often become their valued friends.
