How many colleges are there in the United States?

    Counting the number of colleges in the United States can be difficult, because some Universities have multiple “colleges.”

    The best estimate I can offer is based on the financial aid programs. According to The National Center for Education Statistics, or NCES, 6,896 post-secondary institutions (universities, colleges, two-year institutions, and non-degree conferring institutions such as trade schools) participated in Title IV federal student financial aid programs for the 2008-2009 school year. This should be a fairly close number to the number of colleges in the United States.
