CCID Registry Frequently Asked Questions


What is the CCID Registry?

The CCID Registry is a vetted, national registry of community-based organizations (CBOs) and college access organizations that support and advise students in their college preparations. To join the CCID Registry, these organizations apply for a permanent ID number, called a CCID.

What organizations are eligible for a CCID?

Organizations that are nonprofit, provide support services to students (preK-14), and/or directly advise students in their college search may apply for a CCID.

What about organizations that provide college access support at a regional or national level, or those that have multiple chapters?

National and regional organizations with or without affiliates are welcome to register for a CCID. When registering, organizations are asked to name any network they belong to, if applicable.

How do colleges and universities know which students are a part of a CBO or college access organization?

When students create or update their MyCoalition Profile, they can denote that they have been, or are currently, a participant in a CBO or college access organization. Students will be able to select organizations that have a designated CCID.

Why should my organization register for a CCID?

In addition to providing a codified identity for your organization in MyCoalition, your participation in the registry will be shared with Coalition member schools, granting greater exposure to the programs and services your organization provides for your students.

What is the Coalition for College?

The Coalition is a diverse group of colleges and universities across the U.S. that is committed to making college a reality for all students through MyCoalition, our set of free, online college-planning tools that helps them learn about, prepare for, and apply to college.

The Coalition was founded to improve the college application process for all students, and we are united in our mission to support lower-income, under-resourced, and/or first-generation students; provide responsible financial aid; and bolster students’ success in college.
