Welcome to Latino U College Access

Latino U College Access is dedicated to making college aspirations a reality for first-generation Latino students. Our mission is to increase college enrollment and completion among first-generation Latino youth by empowering students with the knowledge and support they need to successfully maneuver the college process.

Latino U promotes college enrollment among first-generation youth through advocacy, community education and student workshops that address the needs of students embarking on the pathway to college. We are an organization committed to Latino high school students, their families, their schools and service providers who seek guidance as they tackle the incredibly complex process of college admission and financial aid. We also provide students with the tools and mentorship they need to succeed in college.

The key to a better and brighter future is higher education, and at Latino U we strive to make that future accessible to and attainable by Latino students who are the first in their families to go to college.

"Education is simply the soul of society as it passes from one generation to another." - G.K. Chesterson

We are Latino U!
