Our Supports Help Ensure Student Success
College Success Arizona awards scholarships to Pell Grant eligible students who show high potential for college success. Each scholar is assigned a Success Adviser who provides support and encouragement to them as they navigate through the collegiate process. CSA also offers intensive College Success Services as a value added program to partner organizations to increase completion chances for students in which they have an interest and investment.
Currently just over 25% of Arizonans hold a bachelor’s degree. In order to be nationally competitive and draw more jobs and industry to our state, Arizona needs a more educated workforce. The Arizona Board of Regents 2020 plan states that, based on expected growth, Arizona needs to double the number of degrees awarded annually.
According to a recent Georgetown study, by 2020, nearly 70% of jobs in Arizona will require a career certificate or college degree. Currently, 31% of Arizona adults have an associate degree or higher resulting in a 37% skills gap. – Complete College America
