How We Make Money

We make money in a few different ways. Sometimes, schools pay us to advertise their programs and help them find students. We always label these ads so you know they’re ads, not our regular content.

We also earn money when people click on links to products and buy them. These are called affiliate links. Our writers and editors pick these products based on their own opinions, not because of any deals with companies.

Sometimes, we partner with schools to create content that helps students. When we do this, our staff writes the content, and we make sure it meets our high standards.

We work hard to make sure you know when something is an ad or sponsored content. We also show you who’s sponsoring the content so you can make informed choices.

How We Stay Independent

We have our way of ranking colleges that keep things fair and unbiased. We use trusted sources, primarily the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), to get accurate info.

We don’t let money influence our rankings. Every school gets treated the same way, based on a specific set of criteria. For example, we consider how many students stay in the program and how much it costs to enroll in it.

We’re serious about being honest and fair. Our writers and editors follow strict rules to make sure our content is accurate and balanced. And all the schools we rank are accredited, which means they meet certain quality standards.

We’re certain of one thing—your search for more information on picking the best graduate degree or school landed you here. Let our experts help guide your through the decision making process with thoughtful content written by experts.
