College In Colorado
Colorado ranks in the top five states nationwide for the greatest number of degree holders per capita, yet only one in five Colorado ninth-grade students will earn a college degree, ranking the state in the bottom quartile nationally. The Department of Higher Education (DHE) – which serves the citizens of the state of Colorado by promoting access to, affordability of, and success in higher education for all students – initiated College In Colorado as a statewide effort to improve college access and change expectations about college for all Colorado students.
A cornerstone of the campaign, www.CollegeInColorado.org, offers a one-stop resource to help students and parents plan, apply and pay for college.
