Can I participate in other “College Access” programs at the same Time?

Yes! If a student participates in another college access program that provides similar services to 10,000 Degrees, they can still participate in the 10,000 Degrees College Opportunities Summit, provided that it does not conflict with other summer programming offered by other college access organizations.

What happens after the 10,000 Degrees College Opportunities Summit?

Students attending a partner high school site will have access to *FREE* year-round workshops and support from a near-peer 10,000 Degrees Fellow. Students will receive email and text updates for upcoming financial aid workshops, college application workshops, and other events to support their matriculation to college. In addition, all students will receive support in completing a 10,000 Degrees Scholarship!
