Google College Search

Google announced improved and new college related knowledge panels for those searching for a college or university to attend. Google said "we're bringing a new feature to Search to help you navigate the college search process."

If you search for some of your favorite colleges on mobile (and sometimes on desktop) Google will show you new knowledge panels that will show information about admissions, cost, student life and more. Google said you can look up "average cost after student aid is applied, including breakdowns by household income." "You can also dig into data around graduation rates as well as typical annual income 10 years after enrollment, designed to help you better understand the potential outcomes of attending that school," Google added.

Google said the information comes from public data from the U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard and Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). Google "also worked with education researchers and nonprofit organizations, high school counselors, and admissions professionals to build an experience to meet your college search needs," they said.
