This report describes the demographics as well as higher education access and success
of Access Center students at CSU. College access is measured by the college going rates for Access Center high schools and with CSU’s yield and admit rates for applicants from these high schools. The metrics used to assess student success are outcomes that TRIO programs require for grant reporting or measures that CSU typically uses.
The students served by the Access Center have greater representation of multiple identities that have historically been associated with lower levels of student success. Overall, there is correlational evidence that the Access Center contributes to the enrollment of historically underserved students at CSU by intentionally serving a very diverse group of students and supporting college access (at CSU and other institutions).
