In today’s blog post you will learn some of the most useful websites for students. I know how confusing it can be when searching for resources. You may not have access to them in high school or may not know of them in college. Either way, it can be hard to know where to start looking.
These will be game-changers in different aspects of your life. Whether it is financial or studying help that you need, this list has you covered.

Unidays is a one-stop-shop for all types of student discounts. High school and college students both qualify to register on the site. Whether you are looking for a laptop, new UGGs, or pretty much anything else, Unidays may have a discount from it. They have different categories on there you can search through:
- Food & Drink
- Health & Fitness
- Sports & Media
Simply input your email address and type in your school’s name. If your school is not listed, you can verify that you are a student by using a .edu email. Unidays also has an app as well, so you can look through deals on your phone. It is easily one of the best apps for students out there.
College Confidential is a forum to find out any information regarding colleges. You are able to search through threads of different topics such as financial aid info, stats of previously admitted students, and transfer advice. This site is great for high school students who are applying to 4-year universities and for transfer students.
If you can’t find the information you are looking for you can always create a new post and ask. It can be a little hard to navigate, so it is best to try and scroll through for a while to get familiar with the UI before posting. I know when I was in high school I was obsessed with the site, but still somehow posted a question to the wrong forum.
The blog on Capital SB is an amazing place to read about credit scores, banking tips, investing, and other finance topics. I have read most of the blog posts on the site, and have learned so much. They aren’t super long and have been broken down so it’s easy to understand. As someone who knew nothing about finances, after reading these blog posts I became more financially literate.
Capital SB also has a newsletter where you can have access to more financial information. I highly recommend signing up for it. If you finish reading all the blogs and still want more information, check out Financial Starter Kit. You can read even more detailed information on setting yourself up for financial success while still being a student.
With HomeworkLib you can input all your homework questions to understand them better. You do not need to create an account to search through the site or to ask questions. From elementary to college, basically, all topics are covered on HomeworkLib. This is one of the best websites for students because it provides quality information for free without the stress of creating an account.
For all answers to homework questions, there is a thumbs up and thumbs down button. It is best to look at the answers to see if they have previously been rated. This ensures that the answer you are looking at is correct and explained well. If there isn’t a thumbs up/down, you can rate it yourself.
Brainly is similar to HomeworkLib where you can receive homework help without signing up for an account. However, there is an extra measure to determine if the answers are correct. Answers will be marked “Answer Expert Verified,” if they are correct and explain the answer properly.
Course Hero is another homework help website, but you do need to have a membership to access ALL of their answers. If you ever come across the site when looking for homework help you may receive a free unlock to your question. You only get a set amount each day but can get around this by going on incognito mode. That way you can look up an unlimited amount of questions for those that say free unlock.
If you are a student, I am sure you have heard of Quizlet. You must create an account to have full access to searching through their flashcards and to create your own. You have the option to create folders and classes as well that you can collaborate on with other users.
If learning key terms through flashcards isn’t your thing, Quizlet has other methods to help you learn. You can use their learn, write, spell, and test features to memorize. Once you are familiar you can also use the play features to create a fun way to learn.
For more advanced math and science-related questions, Wolfram Alpha is the go-to place. You can input mathematical equations and receive step-by-step solutions. My favorite part of the site is that it graphs most questions! For someone who absolutely hates graphing, it is very helpful to be able to see it plotted out on the site without doing the work.
With this site, you do not have to sign up for an account to have access. However, you can sign up and pay for a premium account to have access to special features. If you are planning to use this site extensively for advanced math, engineering, physics, and other STEM courses it may be worth it for you. Personally, I was fine without premium for all my calculus, statistics, and economics classes.
