College Search Spreadsheet Template


Aug   2016



College search spreadsheets are magical. They let you keep track of all your college info and compare it easily. With tools like Google Drive and Dropbox, you can access your spreadsheets all the time on your phone and laptop. You can even color-code the fields—if you want to get really crazy.

We tell students to make a spreadsheet for their college search all the time. (It came up three times in our Ultimate Guide to the College Search alone!) But after we looked online and saw there weren’t many sample college search spreadsheets out there, we decided we needed to take matters into our own hands.

So here it is, a college search spreadsheet template for the world to use. You can use it as is or make it your own, with all of the college search criteria that's important to you.
