UM Joins National Coalition for Access, Affordability and Success

July 17, 2017

MISSOULA – The University of Montana was among 40 schools recently to become a member of the Coalition for Access, Affordability and Success for public and private colleges and universities across the nation.

To be eligible for coalition membership, schools must score high in two of the following three areas: engaging underserved populations, helping students graduate with little to no debt and achieving high graduation rates.

The coalition also aims to improve the college admission application process for students through streamlining a free platform of online tools for high school students.

Membership in the coalition now includes 135 college and universities, representing 34 states and the District of Columbia.
