CAP College Success Institute

According to the National Student Clearinghouse, college completion within six years of high school graduation for students from high-poverty schools is only 21%. This was compared to low-poverty high schools where students were more than twice as likely to earn a degree within six years of high school graduation (53%). 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.

Our annual conference has been postponed until May 2021 due to the coronavirus. In lieu of this year’s event, we have moved the conversation online creating a special blog series featuring leading practitioners in college success from around the country. Special thanks to The John H. & Regina K. Scully Foundation and The Stupski Foundation for their support
of this series.
