BestFit is transforming the way students and colleges find one another

Why BestFit?

Searching for colleges should be one of the most exciting and engaging moments of your student life.

It’s a chance to learn more about who you are and what you care about in your future college and career path.

However, it’s overwhelming, frustrating, and costly to find colleges that are a good fit for you.

College websites and brochures all look the same, college visits are expensive, and college rankings don’t portray the full benefits and challenges of a college experience.

BestFit makes college search fun, simple, and equitable.

We believe everyone deserves to find colleges that are an academic, social, and financial fit, and provide students with the resources and insights to do so.

How it works

100% free for students, accessible on any device with Internet access.

Customize your profile. We’ll listen to your needs & wants and recommend you college-related advice and a list of colleges to start off with.

Honest advice only
“In college there’s normally 3 things that you get to choose 2 from: academics, social life, and your health.... the main thing you have to focus on is time management!”

Are you a parent or counselor who wants to help?

We created BestFit to not only empower students with the college choice process, but also to support counselors and parents with their work. We're seeking partners with the same mission as us: we’ve collaborated with high schools and college access programs to build a college-going culture and introduce BestFit to their students. We also design college advising curricula and resources so that students, mentors, and educators can make the most of BestFit.
