Is Cappex a Scam?

Our Cappex ValuesAt Cappex, we’ve a list of core company values that hangs on display in our office as a constant reminder of what we represent to the people we serve. Among them is the phrase, “Strive to be trustworthy.” Searching for the right college is a big deal. All of us here know that. We also know that to every student and every parent it can be one of the most important decision-making processes of one’s life.

There are a lot of options out there. The Internet is littered with sites claiming to have what you’re looking for–“Sign up here,” “Apply for this,” “Free this or that.” With all the scams, frauds, and bogus claims on the web, we’re asked quite a bit, “Is Cappex legitimate?” For anyone wondering what makes us different, here’s why:

Our job is to make the college search and admissions process not only a simple one, but one you can trust. Without that commitment, there would be no Cappex. Our site launched in 2007, and since then, we have over 3.8 million cumulative student users. More than 19,000 guidance counselors from high schools around the country use the site’s resources. Over 1,700 colleges and universities connect with students through the site, and we regularly interact with our 187,000+ Facebook likes and 8,500+ Twitter followers.

The college profiles at Cappex are the most comprehensive you’ll find anywhere. The profiles are populated by data from the Integrated Post-Secondary Education Data System (or IPEDS) as governed by the US Department of Education. Cappex scours thousands of data points to provide a unique search process that caters to the users’ interests, needs, and aspirations, thereby allowing students to search according to what “fits” them best. College search made simple indeed.

Cappex’s scholarship team is second-to-none. We’re constantly scouring the earth for new scholarships, checking facts, and monitoring deadlines to continue to grow the web’s largest scholarship database, focusing not only on national scholarships, but less competitive local ones that students are more likely to win.

We know the search can be daunting. It’s never too soon to start looking for your perfect college match, or too late to try to find scholarship money to help pay for college. That’s why we’re here. Join today, and let us help simplify your college search.
