About College Possible Omaha

At College Possible Omaha, we’re working to close the college degree divide. Since its founding in 2011, College Possible Omaha has empowered more than 3,170* students from under-represented communities on their path to earning a college degree. Its pioneering model matches eligible students with a near-peer coach and an evidence-based curriculum designed to help them overcome the most common barriers to getting into college and completing their degree – all at no cost to students or their families.

College Possible Omaha scholars are bright, ambitious and resilient. Through our partnerships with area partner high schools and college institutions, we are advancing college equity for the greater Omaha community.
