In Plain English

College Compass is a for-profit blog, meaning that in addition to the free resources offered on this site, I also offer paid books and do reviews. All items that I endorse or review are ones that I would use without being paid, and my opinions are my own. I will always indicate when an item was gifted to me, or when I am linking to something that provides me a financial “kick-back.” Promise.

I also sometimes use affiliate links, which give me a small commission if you purchase the item I mention. This does not affect the price that you pay for the product or service, and again, I will always indicate when a link is an affiliate link in the post in question.

If you have any questions about this policy, please feel free to email me at sara@collegecompass.co.
