Lycoming College joins organization that improves college access for under-represented students

Lycoming College joins Juniata College, Franklin and Marshall College, Swarthmore College and many others, as it accepts admission applications offered by the Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success, beginning this fall. The mobile-friendly coalition application includes a suite of online college planning tools — completely free of charge for all high school students — which supports collaborative early engagement outreach efforts by member colleges.

Along with the coalition application, Lycoming College also accepts submissions from the Common Application or Lycoming’s own online application.

“We have long supported open access to qualified students, regardless of their ability to pay,” said Mike Konopski, vice president for Enrollment Management. “Joining this organization provides another easy way for students to apply to our College and also benefit from the organization’s many support services.”

The coalition was founded on principal values, beliefs and extensive research to improve the college application process for all students. Members of the coalition include a diverse group of public and private universities that provide substantial support to lower-resourced and under-represented students, offer responsible student financial aid support and demonstrate a commitment to student graduation.

“Expanding our membership creates the potential for outreach efforts to have a broader impact; we are thrilled to be able to collaborate with Lycoming College to improve college access,” said Annie Reznik, executive director of the Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success.
