The Featured colleges and universities that are on our site are there because they chose to utilize our service. Their participation allows us to bring this site to you for free. After you complete registration, you will be able to do a college search, which includes all four-year colleges and universities. You will only be able to request information from featured/member colleges and universities.
To e-mail any of the member colleges and universities featured on our website (you need to be registered) go to college search and find the school you are interested in learning more about. If you click on the college/university name, the profile of the school will appear. To the right of the profile you will find many options; one of them is "Send an E-mail." Click it and your e-mail will be sent to the college/university admission office directly.

Click it and you will be driven to the college/university online application webpage (if they offer that option on their website).
To receive more information from any of the member colleges and universities featured on our website (you need to be registered) go to the college search and find the schools you are interested in learning more about.

Unfortunately, we cannot control when and if colleges and universities you request information from through our website respond to you. We do send every information request directly to each one you select. Since each individual college/university controls their own communication with students, we recommend that if you haven’t heard from some of the colleges/universities you selected, contact the college/university directly.
