On a Mission to Empower Students
College Factor empowers students to become college graduates and to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). We promote higher education in low-income communities and work with families and schools to ensure students have the academic skills in math and literacy to become college graduates.
Why Get a College Degree?
Higher education is the gateway to a brighter future. Having a college degree will bring you more financial stability, better job opportunities and a higher quality of life.
In the US and around the world there is a growing demand for those with higher education while the need for those with less than a college degree continues to fall.
