Deepening Our Commitment to Students During


Our hearts go out to the members of our community that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s a challenging time in so many ways. And from our viewpoint, we see students grappling with college decisions in the face of so much uncertainty.

AdvanceEDU students and friends,

As we launch this summer, AdvanceEDU only deepens its commitment to serving Denver students, knowing  the barriers that too often keep students from persisting in higher education—financial constraints, the need for more flexibility and support, and the desire to feel connected within a community—will only be more pronounced as COVID-19 continues to affect the way we live, work, and study.

Safety will be at the forefront as we begin to serve students. AdvanceEDU is built entirely on  flexibility, and we’ll continue to onboard and serve students safely and with a continued focus on high-quality coaching and personalized support while remote. You can read more about our COVID-19 operating plan below. 

College decisions shouldn’t fall on your shoulders alone right now. If you are looking to start or restart your degree and would like to talk through college options amidst COVID-19, we’re here to help—even if that means you don’t choose AdvanceEDU. Reach out today, we are ready to work with you!
