The College Portrait website is a trustworthy source of basic, comparable information from over 300 public colleges and universities presented in a common, user-friendly format. The website is designed to be a tool for prospective students and their families during the college search process as well as a resource for high school guidance counselors, community college advisors, state policy-makers … or anyone interested in learning more about public colleges and universities!
Each institution’s College Portrait has a variety of information including the characteristics of students and faculty, admissions requirements, popular majors, average class sizes, campus safety, the future plans of graduates, and much more. Every College Portrait provides cost of attendance and financial aid information and an interactive tool for users to more specifically estimate their own costs at a particular institution. And only on a College Portrait can users find a snapshot of student experiences on campus and the expected learning gains of students in critical thinking and written communication.
