About Us

At BestColleges, we understand that what makes a college the "best" looks different to every student, and each college search comes with its own unique challenges. This is why we aim to help prospective students find the schools that best meet their needs through proprietary research, user-friendly guides, and hundreds of independent college rankings.

Connecting Students to Resources

What Do We Do?

We provide students with direct connections to schools and programs that suit their educational goals through our degree resources and program rankings. Our rankings are intended to inform and guide prospective students toward institutions that provide quality education and meaningful learning experiences at affordable costs.

We also host a wide array of free college planning, financial aid, and career resources to help all students get the most from their education and prepare for life after college.

Flexible Learning Options

Why Online Education?

We believe distance learning is a powerful educational opportunity for schools and students. It's a flexible option for students who cannot attend traditional campus classes, like those who are working full-time or have childcare restrictions.

As online higher education demand grows and more schools bring programs online, we want to give those individuals who might otherwise miss out on an opportunity to attend college the information they need to start their college searches.
