It’s a tool to help students choose the right college--and the online gift comes from the White House.

Because of the increasing cost of college and student debt, the White House wanted to make the college selection process a little easier for American families.

The Department of Education plans to help students, their parents and advisors make better choices when it comes to higher education.

That includes a redesigned college scorecard you can find HERE

The White House says it provides the clearest and most reliable national data on college cost, graduation, debt and post college earnings.

The scorecard gives future college students the ability to rate schools based on what is most important to them.

You can search degrees, programs, the size and location of potential colleges.

There are also helpful links that point you in the direction of four year schools with low costs that lead to high incomes.
