Can I get a list of all the high schools, colleges and univeristies in
the world? Looking for the list in MS OFFICE format (any office
application). Please let me know how comprehensive this list is in
your answer.

I only know of the existence of such a list for the US, though I
imagine it could be pieced together for a few other countries as well.

I would strongly advise revising your question (or posting new
questions, all together) that ask for the list one country at a time.

I simply do not think a global list is available, and even it it was,
it would probably be too large to be handled by a program like Excel,
or other Office applications.

Just my two cents...

Thats fine. Only a US list would do too but then the compensation
would be reduced. I think we can do $50 for a US one, and $25 per
english speaking country from then on. Please let us know if youre

So far, so good.  Next, I need to know just what you mean by a "list"?
 What information do you want on the list?  Just the names of the
schools?  Or something more?

The US 'list', should have full name of school and zip. Any other
information would be a great bonus. With the international schools,
country, the city/town they're in and the full name. Once again, any
other information would be very helpful.

I have a list compiled of more than 26,000 public and private high
schools and colleges in the US.  The list is in Excel format, and
includes school name, zip code, and phone number.

I'll be glad to post this as an answer to your question, but first
you'll need to adjust the price, as you indicated in your last
comment.  To do so, here are the directions:
You can change your price at anytime as long as your question is not
currently 'locked' and being answered by a Researcher. To change your
question price, go to "My Account," select "My Unanswered Questions"
and click on the question with the price you want to change. Then
click on "Change Question Parameters" to modify the price.

Change it as you see fit, and I'll post the file to answer your question.

The price has been updated. I appreciate the effort and look forward
to getting the list. Also if you could help us out with the Intl.
listing - that would be awesome. Do let me know if you're interested.

Here you go:

Please save the file to your local system, as the above link is not permanent.

I noticed in finishing up the file that there are a small number of
records that are not perfect -- mostly, missing zip codes and the
like.  These records were imported from their original databases "as
is", so I'm afraid there's not much I can do to modify them.  But
again, there are only a small number of imperfect records.

The list is ordered as:  Public High Schools, followed by Private High
Schools, and lastly, a list of Colleges and Universities.

The original databases are all available at the US Department of Education website:

Let me know if you need any additional information about how to make
use of their various database tools.

I trust you have everything you need at this point, at least for US
schools.  But please don't rate this answer until you are fully
satisifed with the results.  If there is anything else I can do for
you, just post a Request for Clarification, and I'm at your service.

I'll just go through the list right now, but in principle looks great!
Could you help us out with the Intl. List?

Request for Answer Clarification by murtiii-ga on 22 Jun 2005 07:06 PDT
Could the list you have given, be separated into high schools and
colleges. Mixing them, kinda spoils the purpose we intend to use the
list for.
Many Thanks

I'd be glad to help out, but I'm not quite clear on what you need.

The list is already separated into three segments:  public HS, private
HS, and Colleges.

It is pretty easy to re-work the list any way you desire by, e.g.
cutting and pasting all the colleges into a separate worksheet.

If you have any problems doing that on your own, let me know, and I'll
be glad to do it for you.  But like I said, I'm not entirely clear on
what you need, so please give me the best explanation you can.



Request for Answer Clarification by murtiii-ga on 22 Jun 2005 07:59 PDT
Could you do that? Divide the list into three distinct documents:
public high schools, private high school and colleges.

Clarification of Answer by pafalafa-ga on 22 Jun 2005 08:30 PDT
Sure.  Give these links a try:

This should do it, I think, but let me know if there are any problems
(and again, download and save these to your own system).
