College Match

Discover Colleges That Fit You Best

Find your dream school

Encourage will show you college options and empower you with the knowledge you need to make well-informed decisions about your future.

Answer a few questions about your preferences—like affordability, location, social fit and majors—and the Encourage college matching tool will show schools that are the best fit for you.

Next, explore your college matches: student body, faculty, admissions requirements, costs, areas of study and more. Save colleges to your favorites and connect with schools interested in recruiting you.

From college exploration to getting recruited

Encourage allows you to opt-in to connect your information with colleges and universities who want to recruit you.

Most people only apply to the schools they know about. Opting-in to recruitment opportunities is an easy way to quickly expand your list of potential schools. Imagine getting recruited by schools you haven’t considered—what if your dream school is one you haven’t heard of yet?
