Google just unveiled a new feature in Search to help users find the perfect college or university.
Results will include everything from the acceptance and graduation rates of schools to their students’ average SAT scores, available majors, demographic make-up, the average salary for graduates 10 years after leaving their school and, perhaps most importantly, the cost of going to a school after financial aid.
Google says it worked with everyone from colleges to high school students and counselors to determine what kind of information the search should bring up.
Schonberg said that Google pulls information for its searches from the U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard and Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). The feature will roll out Tuesday for mobile and desktop.
The only problem with Google’s offering is that it doesn’t provide information on two-year community colleges, or international schools. But if you’re a prospective student, it could be a huge help in your search for the perfect college.
