The National College Access Network (NCAN)

The National College Access Network (NCAN) is a Washington, D.C.-based organization that provides resources and support to member organizations.NCAN defines a college access organization as “an entity that helps under-served students plan, prepare and pay for college.” An agency need not do all three of those things but must do at least one to be considered a college access organization.NCAN has a directory of college access organizations by state, and the leaders of such organizations are often eager to highlight their work or help shine light on issues within their field.
