Degree Information & Resources for LGBTQ Students

Many student populations have been historically underrepresented in college and higher education, and LGBTQ students are one of these populations. Finding resources and support is critical and locating the right information can help make the journey through college easier.

Earning your college degree can be expensive and students should look to take advantage of scholarships whenever possible. In addition to the LGBTQ Students Scholarship from, we have compiled a comprehensive guide outlining additional scholarships for LGBTQ students. As well as scholarships, taking college credit exams such as CLEP or taking online college credit courses can help reduce the cost of a degree.

Evaluating schools and finding the perfect fit for your education and career aspirations is important as well, which is why the team at has developed a comprehensive college guide for LGBTQ students to help students evaluate colleges and find other helpful resources for your college experience.
