National College Access Network
Drawing on the expertise of hundreds of organizational members in almost every U.S. state, NCAN is dedicated to improving the quality and quantity of support that underrepresented students receive to apply to, enter, and succeed in college. Only 12 percent of students from low-income families complete a four-year college degree by age 24, compared to 58 percent of students from high-income families. When nonprofit organizations and schools provide specialized early awareness information, pre-college advising on admissions and financial aid, and mentoring, college entrance and completion rates rise dramatically. NCAN members touch the lives of more than two million students and families each year and span a broad range of the education, nonprofit, government, and civic sectors.
NCAN provides member organizations with professional development, networking, benchmarking, and news from the field so they can deliver college access and success services more effectively and to more students. Resources include conferences, webinars, and online tools such as guidebooks and manuals as well periodic regrants to implement new initiatives. NCAN also advocates at the national level for policies to improve access and success for all students.
