About Us

The Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success is a group of more than 140 distinguished colleges and universities across the U.S. that joined together to increase students’ access to higher education.

Our diverse member schools are united in their mission to support lower-income, under-resourced, and/or first-generation students; to provide responsible financial aid; and to bolster students’ success in college—and beyond.

The Coalition was founded in 2015 by a group of dedicated college leaders aiming to improve the college application process, particularly for those students from historically under-represented groups.

Today, we help make college a reality for all students through MyCoalition, our set of free, online college-planning tools that helps students learn about, prepare for, and apply to college.
