Creighton Participates in Enhanced Website Assisting with College Selection

Creighton University is among more than 700 institutions celebrating the second year of participation in U-CAN, the University & College Accountability Network, a voluntary consumer information website of the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU). U-CAN “2.0,” improves the current website which was designed by consumer focus groups to provide assistance in making an informed decision on college selection. The website profiles each school through narrative descriptions and information on more than 40 factors that matter to consumers.

Enhancements this year include students’ costs broken out by category, tuition trends, admission and graduation rates, average student aid packages, average debt at graduation, and much more. The refurbished site also offers guidance on how to prepare academically and financially for college, finding the right fit, and navigating the admissions and financial aid processes. 

" U-CAN is a proven tool that helps students, parents, and high school counselors with quick, accurate and in-depth information about schools. Participation is growing because the website is a critical tool for the college search and admissions process, “ said Don Bishop, Creighton associate vice president for enrollment management.

The website can be accessed at www.ucan-network.org.
