IPEDS College Opportunities On-Line (IPEDS COOL). A powerful site set up by the US Department of Education. You can search by specific college, or if you're not sure of the college you want to attend, you can search by for a college based on its location, program, or degree offerings either alone or in combination. The more criteria you specify, the smaller the number of colleges that will fit your criteria. Once you've found some colleges of interest, you can obtain important and understandable information on all of them.
