Is CollegeXpress registration open to everyone?

Is CollegeXpress a free website?

Yes, all the features on the CollegeXpress network are completely free to anyone who registers on the site.

Why isn't the college or university I’m interested in included as a featured college on CollegeXpress?

The featured colleges and universities 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 completing registration, you’ll be able to browse for schools in our database, which includes all two- and four-year colleges and universities in the United States. However, you’ll only be able to request information in one click from our featured member colleges and universities via CollegeXpress.com. We recommend reaching out to non-member schools directly to request information.

How do I receive more information from the member colleges and universities featured on your website?

To request information from any of the member colleges and universities featured on our website, you’ll first need to register for free at Global.CollegeXpress.com. During registration, you’ll see a list of schools and colleges that we match you to based on your registration information, and you can use the list to request information quickly. After you complete registration, you can also access our College Search tool, Lists & Rankings, Quick Connect, and Suggested Schools to find other universities you’re interested in learning more about. As you’re searching, if you see a green “Yes, Connect Me!” button, you can click it and your request for more information will be sent directly to the school.

How do I contact or apply to the featured colleges and universities on your website directly?

To email any of the featured colleges and universities on our website, go to the school’s profile. Click the “Send an Email” button at the top of the profile, and your message will be sent directly to the college or university’s admission office. You’ll also see an “Apply Online” button at the top of each profile; clicking this will bring you directly to the university’s application on its website.

Why haven't I heard from the featured colleges and universities I selected to receive more information from on your website?

Unfortunately, we can’t control when or if colleges and universities you request information from via CollegeXpress respond to you. We do send every information request directly to each school you select. Since each individual college/university controls its own communication with students, we recommend that if you haven’t heard from some of the schools you selected, try contacting the college/university directly.

How can I delete my CollegeXpress account?

To delete your CollegeXpress account, just select the Cancel/Delete Account/Unsubscribe option under “Subject” on the Contact Us form. Be sure you include your full name, email address, and other contact information so we can process your request.
