Our work aims to address the main barriers to college success. Particularly for low-income students who are the first in their family to go to college, barriers to college access and degree attainment begin at a young age, persist until graduation, and fall into the following categories:
Building college knowledge to to begin academic and financial preparation well before they graduate from or even enter high school.
Accessing financial aid, building financial literacy, knowing college options, and being able to pay for college.
Supporting students through the high school to college transition and building college support knowledge.
Ensuring students are supported through their entire college career through degree completion.
