Edquity provides fast, equitable distribution of emergency cash grants through evidence-based technology. Students who apply for emergency aid using the Edquity app are proven to be more likely to graduate — saving colleges hundreds of thousands in potentially lost tuition dollars, and helping students continue on their educational path.
"We just wouldn’t have been able to [retain students]...those students would have had to drop out and probably never came back, but a small grant makes a big difference at the right time. That’s the value of Edquity for us."
Dr. Pyeper Wilkins Vice Chancellor, Workforce & Advancement of Dallas College
"As the first California community college to work with Edquity, I am encouraged to see this initiative translate into results for our students and am excited to continue to expand our use for emergency aid to increase retention, graduation, and enrollment for both our dual enrollment students from local high schools within our District and students who have withdrawn from Compton College due to the pandemic."
Keith Curry President/CEO of Compton College
