How does Noodle make money?

Noodle helps the country's top not-for-profit institutions identify highly qualified applicants. What this actually means: Many colleges and universities pay Noodle for the contact information of student users who have expressed interest in learning more about that college or university's degree-granting programs. Noodle never sells user information without user consent. Noodle also never publishes sponsored content without explicitly marking that content as such — meaning you can trust the editorial integrity of all Noodle articles.
