Service Providers

Since 2008, the Georgia College Access Challenge Grant Initiative, awarded to the State of Georgia Governor's Office, has provided resources to increase college access and success for all Georgia students.   

One of the goals of the Initiative is to provide the general public with information about those organizations whose primary goal is to provide college and career success direct assistance to those Georgians who aspire to pursue their education beyond high school (K-12 students, college students, parents, adult learners, etc.). 

BE A FEATURED ORGANIZATION!

Adult ClassroomEDIT.jpgThe College Success Georgia website will showcase service providers across the state of Georgia who are working to improve college access and success for K-12 students and adult learners. Once your pertinent information is provided, you will be featured on this website as a resource to the general public and other partners. Please complete this Survey and become a Featured Organization listed on the website.

Gentle reminder:  By completing our brief survey you're granting permission to list your organization as a College and Career Success service provider. You can remove your organization from the website at any time by sending an email to the college success email.  

If you are interested in partnering with one of these organizations, please visit our Featured Organizations page to find programs that increase the likelihood of student success at your institution.

ENCOURAGE FAFSA COMPLETION AT YOUR ORGANIZATION

The federal government requires a FAFSA from all students seeking financial aid, such as Pell Grants and federal student loans, to pay for college. College Goal Georgia hosts FREE events where volunteers help students and families who need assistance in completing their FAFSA, with a particular focus on helping low-income, first-generation families. Be sure to visit their College Goal Georgia site later this fall to find a FAFSA completion event near you! 

GSFC also conducts supplemental Financial Aid events across the state. Visit their site to find one in your area? 

Still no events in your back yard? Reach out to Georgia Student Finance to receive assistance on conducting a workshop in our community or to provide training on the new site. They can be reached at gsfcinfo@gsfc.org, 1-800-505-GSFC or (770) 724-9000 in Metro Atlanta. Representatives are available Monday - Friday from 8:30AM to 5:00PM.

SUPPORT AN APPLY TO COLLEGE EVENT

Georgia Apply to College (GAC) has the goal of providing all Georgia high school seniors with the opportunity to apply to college using GAcollege411.org, with a focus on providing assistance to first generation and underrepresented students as they navigate the college application process.
Please visit the Georgia Apply to College site to find an event in your area to support.

GET THE DATA ON THE COMMUNITIES YOU SERVE

Whether you are allocating resources, writing a grant or focusing on community solutions, it is important to know the data on the counties and populations in Georgia that you serve.

The College Success Georgia Network (CSG) community profile report is the first of its kind to provide a current, comprehensive, and easily accessible account of college and career readiness indicators, as well as access and success data on each county and school district in Georgia. The goal is to annually collect, compile and publish the most up-­‐to-­‐date statistics on college and career readiness for all 159 counties and 216 school districts, to include information by educational attainment, college readiness, employment and statistics on low-­‐income and other vulnerable populations. A State Profile was created and is included in each County Profile document. 

CSG hopes to contribute to college and career success by providing data and referral of local and statewide resources to promote student success and increase opportunities for Georgia students and adults.
