Improving Access to Higher Education on the North Coast

College of the Redwoods and Cal Poly Humboldt are building on a long-standing partnership to help CR students achieve their college dreams and make that path seamless for CR students who transfer to Humboldt.

Connected by a shared purpose and deep commitment to the North Coast, both institutions educate many of the same students and share thousands of alumni. This collaboration reflects the commitment to providing positive, meaningful educational experiences grounded by the tight-knit and vibrant community of the North Coast.

Together, we will help our students and communities flourish.
