Curious about other colleges?

College Navigator

This resource is provided by the U.S. Government's Institute of Education Sciences (IES) to provide students the opportunity to search for colleges of interest (including 2 year, 4 year, private and public) by a variety of parameters to include:

  • Location · Distance from home
  • Size of the college
  • Setting (rural, town, suburban, city)
  • Majors/programs
  • Level of award (Certificate, Associate’s, Bachelor’s, Advanced) 
  • Percentage of applicants admitted
  • Extended learning opportunities
  • Tuition and fees 

Additional parameters can be searched as well. Special features allow students to create a “My Favorites List” to compare schools, the ability to export results into a spreadsheet, an interactive map that pinpoints a school’s location, and a “save your search” option.
