You’ve got a lot going on. The last thing you have time for is searching through a bunch of different sites looking for schools and scholarships, and then figuring out how much they’ll cost you and how competitive you’ll be if you apply.

That’s how your parents did it, but you’re smarter. You have Cappex. Cappex is a quick, easy-to-use resource that simplifies the discovery, application, decision, and payment process. Best of all, it’s free.

With a Cappex account, you can browse our extensive database of schools, majors, and scholarships to build the perfect plan for attending college. We’ll help you find the right-fit school for you based on your personal preferences and calculate your chances of acceptance based on your real-life stats.

College Greenlight, part of Cappex, works to make college more accessible for underrepresented and historically underserved students by bridging information and opportunity gaps with free resources, events, and scholarships. College Greenlight is well known for the Fly-In and Diversity Visit Program List that’s published and kept updated in the student portal.
