California Colleges

The California College Guidance Initiative (CCGI) works to ensure that all 6th-12th grade students in California have access to a systematic baseline of guidance and support as they plan, prepare, and pay for post-secondary education and training.

CCGI has two overarching objectives:

  1. All high school seniors graduate with a thoughtful, well-informed, post-secondary plan.

  2. Students' academic transcript, unique identifier, and college and career planning data follow them in a manner that reduces information gaps that hinder student success.
