A leading college success nonprofit in California, 10,000 Degrees helps students from low-income backgrounds get to and through college: 85% of our students are the first in their families to go to college. Thanks to comprehensive personal support, academic counseling, and financial aid management, more than 80% of 10,000 Degrees four-year college students earn bachelor's degrees, compared to 31% of their peers nationally. At the same time, 10,000 Degrees community college students transfer to and graduate from four-year colleges at three times the national average. Unlike with most other college support organizations, there is no GPA requirement for students applying to 10,000 Degrees programs. Currently, 10,000 Degrees supports students in 19 area high schools, 10 community colleges, and over 50 four-year colleges and universities in California and across the country.
