Meet College Board Search

College Board Search is an integrated enrollment solution comprising three services designed to help institutions find students, focus recruitment strategies and improve marketing ROI.

  • Student Search Service® is the largest, most effective admission search database in the U.S., connecting more than 7.5 million test-takers with colleges, universities and nonprofit educational organizations.
  • Enrollment Planning Service™ is a set of strategic analysis and reporting features that taps into Search’s historical database of 15 million test-takers.
  • Segment Analysis Service™ (formerly Descriptor PLUS) is a powerful data enrichment and tagging service that helps institutions identify promising prospective students by providing information about where students live and where they go to high school.
