We know that there are many amazing Colleges and Universities in the United States. Although finding the right one might be tiring, we hope to be a support on this amazing journey. We use the College Scorecard API collected by the U.S Department of Education to provide quick facts about specific schools.

The Problem

The creation of this web app in this space is to simply address the inaccessibility of colleges information and to present it with beautiful UI elements that will make the user experience a lot better than what we experience on the web today. Tailored for:

  • High school grads
  • Transferring students
  • And simply for anyone who’s interested in finding quick facts about a college

The solution

This app allows users to discover schools from the Find page in multiple different ways!

  •  Search for a school using its name (i.e. Clemson University) or abbreviated state that it's in (i.e. NY)
  •  Constrain the tuition
  •  See schools you already have an eye on with the "Favorites" tab

Users can discover schools this way whether or not they have created an account. A user can create an account using the Sign In tab, where they can enter their name, email, and a password to be able to create a new account. Once an account has been made, the user can sign in or out using this login information whenever they want. Once logged in, a user has the ability to add and remove a college to their favorites list directly from viewing that college's card and clicking on the  Favorite or  Delete button on the bottom of the card. Additionally, upon logging out and back in, user's preferred tuition value is saved in the search sidebar on the Find page.
