College Search Spreadsheet Template

Here's the college search spreadsheet template you need to keep all your admission and application info organized! Download the free resource here.

Researching colleges? Keep track of them all with this handy spreadsheet. 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.

Note: This is our example template, so we can't grant you access to edit this specific document. But you can download the Google Sheets file to your own computer to make your own personal copy, copy and paste the fields in a new document, or just look at it for inspiration. Click the image to view the Google Doc:

I want to sincerely thank you all for this amazing website that's legitimately helped me find so many different scholarship opportunities. I've been stressing out for the longest time about paying for college since I would rather stay out of debt and have been working days trying to find any scholarship opportunity. When I found CollegeXpress, I discovered many easy scholarships that have given me hope for the future. Thank you and God bless!

I found CollegeXpress when you partnered with Bold.org for a scholarship. I found your website, put my information in, and got connected. I only wanted to stay in North Carolina [for college] and not move far from home, but you all opened a door up for me. I started researching colleges you suggested for me. On your social media platforms, you also give really good test-taking tips that I used and suggested others to do the same. It helped me a lot on my exams, so thank you.

CollegeXpress has helped me tremendously in my college search in narrowing down the schools I’m interested in. Using the college search tool, I was able to narrow down my choices to schools that matched what I was looking for. I also used CollegeXpress for their scholarship search, which helped me find scholarships that I meet the requirements of.

CollegeXpress has helped me find so many scholarships that fit me. They match me to colleges I have specific interest in to make searching for colleges way easier and more efficient. CollegeXpress refers me to schools that have my major of interest and backup schools if I want to change my mind. CollegeXpress also gives out their own scholarships, so you have even more of a chance at gaining multiple scholarships. This website has helped me de-stress from the pressure of not being able to afford college, [of finding] what schools are right for me, and how to find easy access to scholarships that most people never knew existed.

CollegeXpress helped me find Allegheny College with the super-user-friendly search tool for both schools and scholarships. Using CollegeXpress, I was able to search for programs I was interested in studying and find colleges that offered those programs. Also, once you search for the college, CollegeXpress can get you connected!
