About College Possible Oregon

At College Possible Oregon, we’re working to close the college degree divide. Since 2012, our college access and success programs have helped put more than 2,4001 students throughout Oregon on the path to a college degree. The majority of students we serve are first-generation college students2 while 69% identify as persons of color.3 Our pioneering model matches eligible students 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 students or their families.

Through the generous support of our volunteers, community partners, individuals, foundations and businesses, College Possible will continue to help more students achieve their dream of college graduation.
