Student evaluations are a traditional way for students to evaluate their college professors. The reviews are read by college supervisors or administrators and, in the case of adjunct professors, sometimes affect whether or not their contracts are renewed. However, the careers of tenured professors are rarely affected by even large numbers of negative student reviews.

Third-party websites are not used in any official way by most colleges, but they are useful to students who are deciding which professors are a good fit for them. Rate My Professors is one of the largest of these sites. As of 2014, the site has over 14 million student reviews and caters to schools in Canada, America and the United Kingdom. The website MyEdu makes recommendations to students based on their learning style.

Students leave feedback and more extensive commentary on Koofers, which also features information about average student grades and how a professor assesses student's work. ULoop allows students to rate professors for overall performance, helpfulness, clarity and the easiness of the course work.
