Is Smarter-College.com an online college?
No, Smarter-College.com is not a college. Our site does not offer online classes or any type of college credit. Instead, Smarter-College.com represents hundreds of sponsoring schools and colleges, helping prospective students find more college options in a single, online directory.
Am I required to “join,” or create an account before I can receive college information?
No, you are not required to register for anything on the Smarter-College.com website. However, if you find a college program or several college programs that match your interests, and you wish to be contacted by an enrollment counselor (by phone, email, and/or postal mail), you will need to provide some basic information about yourself. When you submit your information request, you must also agree that Smarter-College.com may contact you with follow-up notices and advice.
If you decide you are no longer interested in receiving updates and college information, you may opt out of Smarter-College.com's emails at any time. If you decide you do not wish to be contacted by the college(s) you selected, you must contact the college(s) directly, and ask to be removed from any contact lists. Smarter-College.com cannot retract information that has already been submitted to sponsoring schools, and Smarter-College.com cannot make opt-out requests on your behalf.
How long will it take for a school I am interested in to contact me?
When you request information about a college program, you will generally hear from the school within one or two days. If for some reason you do not hear from the school, please feel free to contact us at 877.824.7954, and we will be happy to match you with another school.

How many schools and programs does Smarter-College.com list?
The exact number of schools and programs changes on a daily basis, but the site generally lists thousands of programs from hundreds of online and campus-based schools.
