Company Overview

Since 2000, our college access and success programs have helped empower more than 80,000* students from under-represented communities on their path to a college degree.

Our pioneering model matches eligible students with near-peer coaches and an intensive curriculum designed to help them navigate and overcome the most common barriers to getting into college and completing their degree — all at no cost to students or their families.

Today, we’re among the largest college access and success organizations in the U.S. We’ve grown from a single regional office in St. Paul, MN to eight regional sites nationwide, and a growing suite of solutions designed to empower students — and those who serve them — at every stage of the college journey.


  • Near-peer coaching: Students benefit from the relatability, recent experience and trusted relationship of our near-peer AmeriCorps coaches who offer an intensive curriculum of personalized support.
  • 6+ years of support: Students enrolled in our Core Program receive one of the longest support cycles available, starting their junior year in high school and continuing through degree completion.
  • Support for unenrolled students: Students who unenroll or stop out of college continue to receive coaching support to help them get back on track toward their college degree goal.
  • Free to students: Thanks to the generous support of our funders and partners, our college access and success programs are offered at no cost to students or their families.

We’re a proud AmeriCorps organization
AmeriCorps is a federal agency that brings people together to tackle the country’s most pressing challenges through national service. Our AmeriCorps members commit to a year of service as College Possible coaches in communities and college campuses throughout the country. Many represent the identities of the students they serve, and each brings a commitment to social justice and closing the college equity divide.

This work is our passion
College Possible was founded by a first-generation college graduate who recognized first-hand the value a college degree can play. Like our founder, each of our valued team members bring a deep commitment to help every student succeed.

Our talented team comes from diverse backgrounds and experiences, and they bring a shared commitment to the success of every student we serve. We are dedicated to creating and maintaining an inclusive culture that embraces diversity. This commitment is realized through a comprehensive, action-oriented, Diversity and Inclusion Plan that promotes a welcoming and equitable environment throughout all levels of College Possible.
