Working with Us

Who we are, what we do, how we get compensated, and our advertising policy for guest posts and link placements.

Who we are:

The Best Colleges is made up of academics, writers, and data analysts. We collaborate to make sense of education. The ultimate goal is to be an objective resource for students. We manage this by providing objective rankings of colleges, universities, and degrees. We also provide education-oriented resources, such as financial aid information, internship opportunities, and helpful strategies.

Advertising Policy:


We do not accept any payment from schools for where they’re placed in our rankings, nor payment for being included in our rankings. In this way we keep our rankings as objective as possible. However, we do receive financial compensation from schools whenever interested site visitors make an inquiry and give their information so that the school can contact them.

Guest Posts and Sponsored Link Placements:

We do not accept guest posts. We will consider paid link placements on a case-by-case basis.
