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

"I thought the [recent OK-CAN] workshop was great. It was interactive, personal and humorous. I learned quite a bit about team work within schools. I learned what a good team should look like and and I have been on teams that have not been so good. I also enjoyed the fact that [the speakers] were not afraid to have fun with the attendees. I enjoyed learning about team qualities that are positive. That made me feel invigorated and ready to tackle my next thing on my to do list." -Counselor, Bishop McGuinnes Catholic High School
