COVID-19: College Success Foundation Resource Guide

We have compiled a resource guide to support the Washington College Access Network during the COVID-19 outbreak. Please visit our COVID-19 Resource Guide for links to education and community support resources. The National College Attainment Network (NCAN) has a helpful blog post: "What NCAN Members Need to Know About How the Government is Responding to COVID-19," which will be updated regularly.

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.
