* FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: 

What are college access/success activities?  College access and success activities are designed to increase the number of students and adults who enroll in college (four-year, two-year, and certificate programs) and earn a degree or certificate within four years.

What kinds of organizations join the coalition?  College access and success activities may be implemented by schools and community organizations interested in college success. Community organizations may include the economic development council, local government, businesses, community foundations, non-profits, youth service organizations, faith-based organizations, service clubs, and others.

Does this take a lot of time?   Don’t have much time?  That’s ok.  Some organizations will be able to implement major initiatives such as large student mentoring programs or scholarship programs. However, to significantly increase the college-going rate, many small activities are needed. Small activities might include:  1) a retail store placing financial aid flyers in shopping bags, 2) a local manufacturing firm including monthly college access announcements in their employee newsletters, 3) a scout troop driving through a college campus during a camp outing, or 4) a middle school helping students develop a college plan. Coalition members will be provided with lots of activity ideas during member meetings along with print materials suitable for distribution to students and parents.
