We empower college opportunity for all
Stronger communities are fueled by college equity
At College Possible, we’re working to close the college degree divide. Since 2000, our college access and success programs have helped empower more than 85,700* students from economically disadvantaged communities on their path to a college degree.

The growing college degree divide
We believe a student’s future should be determined solely by their aspirations, motivation and effort, not by their family’s income
Yet nationwide, there’s a widening gap between the aspirations of students from economically disadvantaged households who want to earn a college degree, and the systemic, unfair barriers they face in achieving it.
A college degree is one of the surest paths to economic mobility
When students from under-represented communities earn a bachelor’s degree, especially those who are the first in their family to attend college, they are 24% more likely to be employed and 3.5 times less likely to live in poverty when compared with peers who don’t attend college.*
We offer a full suite of college access and success programs
We partner with high schools, school districts, colleges and universities, community-based organizations, and philanthropic and corporate funders nationwide to deliver a growing suite of evidence-based programs designed to close the degree divide.
Regionally responsive programming is strengthening local communities
Our site-based Flagship program is delivered through eight regional sites nationwide. Through local partnerships with high schools, school districts and colleges, we offer a minimum of six years of evidence-based, near-peer coaching to help students navigate and overcome the most common barriers on their path to earning a degree.
College Forward is now College Possible Texas
