College Directories

There are literally hundreds of colleges out there for the normal student to have to choose from. How can you possibly decide where you want to go, what place has what programs and whether you can actually get into any of them? That’s the beauty of college directories. They list all the colleges that are available to students in the United States and elsewhere and help them decided how to differentiate between them.

The College Board is far and away the most popular of all the college directories and has many thousands of students log on over the course of their senior year of high school to see what colleges fit their criteria. They have the data for pretty much every college you can think of from the University of Phoenix to Harvard with everything in between. If you want to know about other smaller liberal arts colleges, they’re there. If you want to know about big technical schools, they’re there too. There’s really an abundance of information from sites such as the College Board.

They take your SAT scores, high school GPA and other factors that you voluntarily choose into their college search to see which ones meet the criteria of what you’re looking for. You can sort by certain programs or just location or a combination of a seemingly endless number of factors. If you only want schools that have certain engineering programs, you can sort by that or if you just want a small liberal arts school in the middle of Pennsylvania, that’s available too. The possibilities are numerous.


Really no matter what program you’re looking for, sites like the College Board help you find it. But for some they can just be too big and include too many different schools. You can search yourself on a search engine to find more specialized college directories for just your specified field. These sites are probably smaller and more unreliable however, so proceed with caution. You can always double check with College Board information though once you see what you want on these sites.

Finding colleges that fit your desired description can really be one of the hardest things you’ll have to do, but with the Internet that readily has information available about pretty much any college you could possibly imagine, it’s easier than ever. Don’t get intimidated, it’s really not nearly as bad as you think.
