Supporting students to own their future


College Success Foundation's Financial Aid Hub

A key component of our work is educating students and families about the tools and resources that exist; training them to navigate financial aid applications and processes; and ensuring they have a clear, sustainable financial plan on how to pay for college.

We also help build capacity in the community by educating school guidance staff and other community organizations so they can support the students in their programs.

The Washington College Access Network vision

By 2020, 70% of all jobs in Washington state will require a postsecondary credential.

The Washington College Access Network believes that all students can pursue a postsecondary education. We work to ensure every student has support from a trusted adult, the information they need to be successful, and access to all financial aid opportunities available to them. We are especially focused on the College Bound Scholarship (CBS) program and the inspiration and incentive CBS can provide to close the achievement gap for students experiencing poverty.

College is postsecondary education
WCAN uses the term "college" to refer to the attainment of valuable postsecondary credentials beyond high school, including professional/technical certificates and academic degrees.

Our mission

Increase postsecondary enrollment for all Washington State students particularly among students experiencing poverty, first-generation college-going students, and students of color.
