CBO ID Registry Frequently Asked Questions


What is the Coalition CBO ID Registry?

The Coalition CBO ID Registry allows eligible nonprofit community-based organizations to register for a permanent ID number called the Coalition CBO ID or 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?

When students create or update their MyCoalition profile, they can denote that they have been, or are currently, a participant in a CBO. Students will be able to select CBOs 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 membership 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 more than 140 distinguished colleges and universities across the U.S. that is committed to making college a reality for all high school students through MyCoalition, its 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 members are united in their mission to support lower-income, under-resourced, and/or first-generation students; provide responsible financial aid; and bolster students’ success in college. Learn more »
