NCES College Navigator search plug-in

The NCES College Navigator search plug-in provides the ability to directly execute basic College Navigator searches from a web browser. The plug-in uses OpenSearch technologies, which are supported by Mozilla Firefox 2+, Internet Explorer 7+ and Google Chrome web browsers.

Usage notes

When using the browser search plug-in, in addition to the existing Name of School search function you can also enter state and jurisdiction abbreviations, for example: –
  • "dc" returns all schools in the District of Columbia,
  • "institute pr" returns all schools with "institute" in their name in Puerto Rico,
  • "community md" returns all schools with "community" in their name in Maryland,
  • "community dc md va" returns all schools with "community" in their name in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.
You can also combine a search with a ZIP code, which defaults to the 5-mile search distance: –
  • "64101" (a Kansas City ZIP code) returns all schools within 5 miles of ZIP code 64101, including schools in Kansas City, MO and Kansas City, KS,
  • "mo 64101" returns schools within 5 miles of ZIP 64101 in the state of Missouri.
  • "tech mo 64101" returns schools within 5 miles of ZIP 64101 in the state of Missouri with "tech" in their name.
If you know the exact IPEDS ID of a school, you can also search by the ID.
Note: The order of the search terms does not matter, although if you enter multiple ZIP codes only the last ZIP code you enter will be used.
