Who We Are

GoGrad.org is all about helping students achieve their academic and professional goals, plain and simple. Our easy-to-use online platform is a place where prospective and current graduate students of all ages, backgrounds, and specialties can find the comprehensive information they need to make informed decisions about their education and post-graduation careers.

We create in-depth resources and data-driven school rankings, conduct student and alumni interviews, speak with experts in various fields, and develop user-friendly search tools to help grad students understand and evaluate all of their options. Whether you're looking for information on degrees, grad school application requirements, financial aid, or career opportunities and earnings, GoGrad.org has you covered.

We understand the importance of finding first-rate programs that align with personal obligations, learning styles, and budgets. Our team consists of writers, editors, and subject-matter experts who are ready to help, regardless of where you are in your grad school journey.

How GoGrad.org Generates Revenue

Trust and transparency are important to us. In addition to our editorial content, our site features advertising from certain colleges and universities that pay us for student referrals. While this is how we generate revenue, we are always clear about what is an ad and what is not. All advertising placements are labeled "ad" or "advertising disclosure," so our users know that we may receive compensation, for example, when they use a program search tool. Our editorial content, however, is never influenced by any college or university we advertise.

We Value Editorial Integrity

Because our mission is to help each student make informed decisions about grad school and life after earning their graduate degree, it is our top priority to create high-quality editorial content that is informative and unbiased. To do this, our team of experts, writers, and editors follow strict standards and guidelines, which include:

  • Reputable Sources: Examples include the National Center of Education Statistics, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and Georgetown's Center on Education and the Workforce.
  • Data-Driven Rankings: All of our rankings are developed using a proprietary methodology that evaluates factors important to grad students, such as online program access, admission rate, retention rate, and program costs. This also means no school, including those we advertise, receives preferential treatment.
  • Accreditation: All schools featured on GoGrad.org are nationally or regionally accredited. We will never feature a school that is not accredited.
