Welcome to the Journal of College Access, a peer-reviewed, academic, open access, online journal with a focus on how students aspire to, gain access to, enroll in and persist in higher education institutions. The Journal is published periodically.

We welcome submissions from a wide community of practitioners including, but not limited to college and university faculty, graduate students, administrators, college access professionals, and others with an interest in the college access movement.
The Journal was cited by the Michigan College Access Network (MCAN) as a reason that Western Michigan University received MCAN's Steward Award in 2015.
