About Detroit College Match

The Detroit College Match Tool was developed by Michigan Future to help expose Detroit high school students to appropriate reach, match, and safety schools, with high graduation rates and low net-prices, based on their academic credentials.

The tool was created in response to the research demonstrating that too many low-income high school students were "undermatching": only applying to lower selectivity regional institutions when they could be applying to selective or highly selective institutions. The Detroit College Match Tool was designed to show students that they often have a lot more options than they may think and could shoot higher than other college match tools might lead them to believe.
