Students use the College Raptor matching platform to discover which schools are their best academic, cultural and financial matches

Enhanced Lead Generation

College Raptor is the only site that can match students and colleges on the three major pillars of enrollment: academic profile, cultural fit, and net price. As a result, students using our site can start their college search process and quickly determine which schools they’d like to further investigate.

Once students find their matches, they can request additional information from colleges and what personal information (demographic, academic, cultural, and financial) they wish to share with their matching colleges. Institutions that partner with College Raptor can directly receive those data-rich leads and immediately respond to actively interested students.
