Looking for a college or university for yourself or your kid(s)? Curious about college costs, enrollment, SAT scores? Use our app to search our database of over 3, 000 four-year and two-year accredited colleges and universities throughout the U.S.

Search by region, state, location (nearby or any specified location), or by (any part of) the school name. You can view national avg costs for five categories of schools. You can control search parameters on the Options page, including public vs. private, cost, enrollment, SAT and ACT avg scores, and campus setting. For example, you can search for private schools in the Southwest with cost below $35, 000 and with enrollment under 2, 500, and avg SAT Math score (admitting class) of at least 520. On the detailed search results for a college, we show the following (if it's applicable to the college and we have it in our database*):

• Full name

• City/state of campus

• *Year founded

• Public/Private

• Two or Four year

• *Campus setting (Major City, City, Urban, Suburban, Town, Rural)

• *Undergrad enrollment

• *SAT scores (verbal, math, written) - 25th and 75th percentile and/or average scores

• *ACT scores (verbal, math, written)

• Button for campus map in Maps app, with map/sat/hybrid display options, zoom controls, and Directions button provides directions to campus from your current position

• *Link to the college web site

Just for fun, try our random search feature - shake your phone on the Location screen to have the app pick a random school based on your current Options settings.

*Important Notes*

The application requires a network connection in order to query our database of schools.

We maintain our own database for approximately 3, 500 Title IV accredited college-level schools, and update the cost data on an ongoing basis. During any given school year, we have the most current school year's costs for a high percentage of colleges and universities. Some schools do not publish their new cost figures until well into the school year, and in some cases we rely on government cost databases where the data may be a year behind. The app shows the school year that the cost data represents for each school. Some schools' cost data varies by degree program or other criteria, so we try to be consistent in the way we collect and present the cost data. The rest of our data is updated from a variety of sources and may not be the most current, but this data does not tend to change as frequently at the schools.

This application and information in it is provided for informational purposes only and should not be relied on for tax, financial, or college selection decisions. We do not guarantee the accuracy or currency of the data presented in this application. A school's web site and admissions office is the ultimate authority on costs, enrollment, etc.
