About College Possible Milwaukee

At College Possible Milwaukee, we’re working to close the college degree divide. Since 2008, our college access and success programs have helped empower more than 4,000* scholars from under-resourced communities on their path to a college degree. Our pioneering model matches eligible scholars with near-peer coaches and an intensive curriculum designed to help them overcome the most common barriers to getting into college and completing their degree — all at no cost to scholars or their families.

Through our partnerships with area high schools and college institutions we are advancing college equity for the greater Milwaukee community.
