A whatever-it-takes approach to help students succeed.
The Hybrid College Network is a collection of nonprofits that recognize the typical college student has changed—and it’s time for college to change, too. That’s why we created a student-centered path to graduation, with flexibility and support built in—so that more people can earn the opportunities that come with a degree.Why Hybrid College
In five years, one small experiment has become a nationwide movement serving thousands of students.
From California to Massachusetts, from Texas to Pennsylvania—a dozen sites and counting.
Students at the first hybrid college dramatically outperform their part-time peers in traditional colleges.
The Hybrid College Model
Four simple components that dramatically increase degrees—and the odds of getting a good job.
