Program Description

College Now helps students as early as middle and high school students as well as adult learners achieve their dreams of going to and succeeding in certificate, two-year and four-year degree programs.

We reach over 29,000 students and adult learners a year, providing college access success advising, financial aid counseling and scholarship and retention services. Many of our students are from low-income families and are first-generation college students.

College Now works with middle and high school students in schools and community-based settings.

across five Northeast Ohio counties and our advisors create a �¢??college-going�¢?? culture in the schools by engaging students and their families individually and in group sessions.

College Now�¢??s focus on adult learners is critical to the success of developing Greater Cleveland�¢??s talent. We provide our solutions to adults, ages 19 and older, who want to return to college or are enrolling for the first time. The College Now Resource Center is a primary point of contact with adult learners, including dislocated workers, unemployed individuals, displaced homemakers, and veterans.
