OK-CAN brings people together to enhance college access teamwork and success

Welcome to
OK-CAN!

The Oklahoma College Access Network (OK-CAN) serves as a centralized hub for nonprofit and not-for-profit college access initiatives in our state. Developed by the Oklahoma College Assistance Program, an operating division of the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, OK-CAN offers:

  • networking opportunities through listserv discussions and regional workshops and trainings.
  • exchange of best practices to support development of relevant, engaging publications, toolkits, and websites.
  • a forum to reach a wide variety of potential partners to pose questions, exchange ideas, or find strategic ways to meet common goals.
  • an informative event calendar to help members take advantage of professional development, training and networking opportunities.
  • access to a “members only” section of the OK-CAN website, which offers an online resource workbench and a member roster to facilitate direct contact with peer service providers.

If you're part of a school (secondary and postsecondary), philanthropic or nonprofit organization, government entity, tribal or religious organization or other community partner who provides college access programs and services, we encourage you to become a member. We believe the potential range of perspectives and approaches will strengthen our collective ability to improve college access for underserved, first-generation college-going Oklahoma families. And best of all, membership is free!

To Apply: Submit our membership application online.  If you prefer, you may submit a PDF membership application. Email it to okcollegeaccess@ocap.org, or send it by mail to P.O. Box 3000, OKC, OK 73101, or fax it to 405.234.4390. We look forward to the many opportunities we can create as like-minded organizations working to help more Oklahomans recognize that education after high school is within reach.

What Members Are Saying

Comments from our April 18 workshop
“(The Resources for Immigrant Students and Families) session was powerful... One thing I found particularly helpful was the presentation of terminology; i.e., legal resident, undocumented refugee, etc.”

“This opened my eyes to the struggles that others face who are not a U.S. citizens.”

“The information was very enlightening and the statistics were extremely informative.”

“I found the presenters to be very knowledgeable. One of the best FAFSA sessions that I have attended.”
