We keep community at the ❤️ of everything we do!
What is College Confidential’s Purpose?
From its inception in 2001, CC’s mission has been to help students and families navigate the college admissions process, better understand their options, and make more informed decisions. We want everyone to have access to timely information and tried-and-true advice to choose the right college.
Why is There Advertising on College Confidential?
While College Confidential is always free for everyone, everywhere, it is not free for us to maintain and improve. So just like your favorite podcast, we rely on advertising and sponsorships. Our team works to directly engage sponsors that add value to our community and users.
Who Runs College Confidential?
College Confidential is operated by Concentrical, an education technology company creating solutions for higher education. We are an independent company based in Portland, Oregon with a passion for helping students. We're not a big-tech mega-corporation or a venture capital-backed tech startup burning through tens of millions of dollars. Our independence and self-reliance gives us the freedom to keep College Confidential uniquely grassroots and authentic. Concentrical’s student success platform and technology have been used to coach and advise millions of students on their journey to and through college.
