Business Challenge

To build a website that helps students and parents to find the right colleges and universities. On the other hand, universities and colleges could collaborate with the portal to find the right students. The client wanted to build a site that could be the answer to all the questions and doubts that students and parents have regarding college life, choosing the right college and course, the admission process, financial aid and numerous other things.


Solution

We at Volga Infotech designed a web portal that could find the best college options for students based on their academic profile. The student can register on the website for free and input all their academic records and achievements. The portal has a rich database of all the courses provided by various Universities, based on which it searches and gives out the best matches to the students. The students can also login, search and keep a track of their favorite colleges, high schools and scholarships.

This search feature is based on an extensive list of criteria ranging from location, type of college, that is, whether public or private, 2 year or 4 year, the academic courses available there, the sports activities, campus culture, the admission process and finally the fees charged, financial aid and scholarships provided by a college can also be searched. With this functionality, a student could look for a suitable college throughout the length and breadth of the country.


Features

  • Provides a list of featured Universities, where a student can find all the information regarding the admission process of the college, the campus life, the courses offered etc.
  • Most importantly, a list of all the financial-aid and student loans is available on the website for the benefit of students looking for options to pay for their tuition fees and boarding costs.

This web portal has become very popular amongst students, parents and academicians alike as it has cleared the confusion and fear surrounding the whole college admission process by providing timely, accurate and useful information.
