How do we do it?


  • Over 100,000 college-bound high school students are asked to participate.
  • A focus group identifies the functional features of each site.
  • Benchmarks are research-validated and reviewed each year.
  • Statistical tests determine the relative importance of each feature to students.
  • Institutions are initially scored on a 100 point scale, then letter grades are assigned using a traditional curve.
  • And that's not all, this project takes us months to put together each year to make sure we get it right!

Did you know...?


  • Three out of 4 students say that a college website is the most influential resource in their college planning processes. Sixty percent of seniors draw a direct correlation between the quality of a college’s website and their quality of education.
  • Half of students say the best way to learn about the tuition costs and financial aid of a college or university is to visit its website. Almost 25% of students look for costs or financial aid information before researching anything else on a college website.
  • More students in the spring semester of their senior years reported adding a college to their considering lists because of academic program/major availability than for any other reason.
  • Seventy percent of 2014 graduates are using Facebook and YouTube. More than half of these students have visited a college's Facebook page and 33% have clicked “like” to follow the college page.
