Our Goal: exists as a resource for students. We assist students in navigating education by providing objective rankings of schools and degrees. We also provide education-oriented resources, such as financial aid information, internship opportunities, and helpful strategies. We do not accept any payment from schools for where they’re placed in our rankings, nor payment for being included in our rankings. In this way we keep our rankings as objective as possible.

Partner With Us:

If you are working for, or on behalf of, an institution of higher learning, and would like to work with us, please email  We will work to produce high-intent student leads, with the goal of increasing student enrollment.

Guest Posts: does not accept guest posts. We also do not accept sponsored articles.

Link Policy:

We will consider links on a case-by-case basis. We appreciate your interest. Email with link requests.

How We Are Paid:

When a prospective student fills out a form giving their information (such as their email, phone number, and name) to request information about a school or degree, that school pays us for the referral. Student’s are giving their information willingly to find out more about a college/degree program, and the prospective student is then contacted by the school.

Search Online Degrees is an advertising-supported site. Featured programs and school search results are for schools that compensate us. This compensation does not influence our school rankings, resource guides, or other information published on this site.
