About Peterson’s CollegeQuest


What We Do

Partnering with colleges and universities, Pterson’s CollegeQuest is focused on providing products and services to help connect students to the right schools to meet their needs. Designed specifically for those interested in career education opportunities, we take a whole new approach when it comes to college search. ColegeQuest.com eliminates the guesswork out of finding a college by narrowing down students’ options to just a few schools that meet their particular criteria.


Our Mission

Through our websites and print publications, Peterson’s smooths the path of the college recruitment process for both students and school administrators alike. As a trusted resource, we strive to supply students with detailed and accurate information to help adequately prepare them in achieving their academic goals. We value our reputation as one of the most respected resources for education and career guidance and continue to expand our reach and in-depth industry knowledge.
