- Locating schools and institutions that offer your desired degree or other criteria
- Connecting you with education providers who may help you determine if their school is a good fit
- Sources for financial aid and scholarships
- Profiles on specific colleges and their credentials
- Finding military-friendly schools and institutions that allow you to transfer previous college credits
- Help getting your credentials converted and diplomas translated to meet specific state or country requirements
