CAP College Success Institute
Nationally, only 13% of low-income students graduate from college by age 24. This is not enough. CAP College Success Institute shares best practices and strategies that help increase the college graduation rate of low-income and first-generation students. Professionals from community-based and direct-service organizations, representatives from colleges and universities, and technology innovators are encouraged to participate.
The College Success Institute is hosted by CAP, which supports nearly 700 students through the successful completion of their college degrees, as quickly and with as little debt as possible. 86% of CAP students are on track to graduate in six years. CAP is a program of
Making Waves Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit.
