scorecard

The U.S. Department of Education recently released its first annual update of the redesigned College Scorecard — available at CollegeScorecard.ed.gov — to ensure that students and families have the most up-to-date, comprehensive and reliable information available on colleges, all in an easy-to-understand format. 

The site allows visitors to sort and filter their search results to easily compare schools and decide which college makes the most sense when considering costs.
