The company's website, collegesolved.com, provides data on United States colleges as well as connects potential students with currently enrolled students and professional admissions consultants.

History

The company was founded in New York City in 2010 by Andrew Ullman and Hayward Majors. The collegesolved.com website was launched in April 2011.[1]

Website

The website provides three services: SearchSolved, CollegiateChat and CounselorConnect.

Searchsolved is a free searchable database of information about non-profit colleges in the United States.
