Other Consumer-information & Accountability Efforts:

With our focus on adult students, this site may not provide all the information you were looking for.  If you're a traditional aged student or are looking for more information on elements of college life such as campus activities, residence halls and the like,  you may want to check out one of the other information and accountability efforts listed here:

The College Portrait is a straightforward presentation of comparable information directly from public universities.  It helps prospective students make careful and informed decisions about which institution is the “best fit” for them.  Sponsored by the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities and the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, each university’s College Portrait includes information on admissions, campus life, student characteristics, degree programs, campus safety, graduation rates and more.

The NAICU (National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities) consumer-information initiative U-CAN (University & College Accountability Network) is designed to give, in a common format, prospective students and their families concise, Web-based consumer-friendly information on the nation's nonprofit, private colleges and universities.
