Established with support from the chancellors’ offices of the California Community Colleges (CCC) and California State University, College Next California helps K-12 districts in selected regions gain access to all the data-driven functionality available on CaliforniaColleges.edu.
Students will experience easier transitions as they move from high school into college and career when their districts take a unified approach to the adoption of CaliforniaColleges.edu throughout each College Next California region. These benefits are particularly meaningful to student populations that are often excluded from college and postsecondary training. Educators also gain access to the tools and resources they need to facilitate meaningful conversations about the future that can change students’ lives.
STUDENTS can complete career assessments, explore college and career options, track their academic progress and college eligibility, launch applications for college and financial aid, and access a wealth of dependable, up-to-date information and curricula on college, career, and financial aid planning.
PARENTS can track progress on college- and career-planning activities and tools to increase “a-g” completion.
K-12 EDUCATORS AND COLLEGE ACCESS STAFF can track students individually or in the aggregate to inform guidance interventions and promote a college-going culture.
