About College Possible Oregon

At College Possible Oregon, we’re working to close the college degree divide. Since 2012, our programs have empowered more than 2,6901 students throughout Oregon on their path to earning a college degree. While 100% of our students are from economically disadvantaged communities, the majority also are the first in their family to attend college while 69%2 identify as persons of color. Our 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.

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.
