For All Types of Students

Testing & Education Reference Center (TERC) is designed to help students — in high school, graduate school, and specialty school and beyond — make their future education decisions easier. TERC is loaded with information on colleges, technical schools, practice entrance exams, and certification and professional license exams that show students what to expect and how to prepare for — and excel at — the next level. Plus, the Resume Builder and Virtual Career Library make TERC perfect for job seekers by providing specific examples and tips for the job search.

 Research Colleges & Universitites

Testing & Education Reference Center provides a vast collection of information on two- and four-year institutions across the United States to help students (and parents) screen potential schools.

Intuitive searches and quick results deliver data that includes the school’s location, tuition, majors, average G.P.A. of incoming students, religious affiliations if any, and much more. And when the selection comes down to a graduate school, students can find nearly 37,000 accredited programs representing a variety of disciplines.

 Identify Funding

Testing & Education Reference Center helps students and parents prepare financially by identifying aid sources and offering tips on how to secure available funds. TERC also offers one of the largest databases of scholarships and grants to assist students in funding their education. Updated and accurate information on more than 1.5 million financial awards is easily accessed.

 Ace the Tests

For many students, the key to testing success is “practice, practice, practice” — which is why Testing & Education Reference Center offers an extensive selection of online and eBook test-prep materials. Career-oriented test prep includes online practice tests for information technology, law programs, nursing programs, Air Force officer qualifying, military flight aptitude, and civil service and licensure exams.

Users will find high-school test prep for GED, AP, ISEE, COOP, SSAT and more. Those aiming toward college can find tests geared to CLEP, FCAT, SAT, ACT, PSAT, TAKS and more. Graduate school preps include GRE, LSAT, MCAT and MAT. There are even international tests covering TOEFL, TOEIC and U.S. citizenship.
