Meet the Coalition

Members of the Coalition include a diverse group of public universities that have affordable tuition along with need-based financial aid for in-state residents, and private colleges and universities that provide sufficient financial aid to meet the full, demonstrated financial need of every domestic student they admit. Coalition schools graduate at least 70 percent of their students within six years, with many having much higher graduation rates. The Coalition has signed up over 90 institutions so far, and more partners continue to join.

The Coalition has developed tools and processes to help address many of the barriers that prevent students from attending college or successfully earning a degree.
