Google College Search adds a new features to help find Good School easily
Google is making life easier for those trying to figure out which College to attend at a good price, by rolling out some new features. The Google college search features will give you fast access to the necessary information you need to plan your higher education.
The college search features give you a concise look at four-year
colleges across the U.S. With only one search query, you can see basic
information like the school’s location and website, as well as more
in-depth stats like the average cost of tuition after aid, the
graduation rate, and the admission rate.
If you click the “More about cost, outcomes, and students” link, you’re
taken to a more in-depth page with incredible amounts of information on
the college experience at that particular school. You can even see the
typical annual income of the average person 10 years after graduation
from the college and the average cost of tuition for various household
incomes, like in the GIF below of my local university:
Google claims that the information for each school comes from the
U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard and Integrated
Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), a comprehensive data set
available for four-year colleges. The company also had assistance
from education researchers and nonprofit organizations, high school
counselors, and admissions professionals.
This new Google college search experience is rolling out now on
mobile search, with some features appearing on desktops, too. However,
it may be a few days before you can see the results as they appear in
the images above.
