Muskegon Opportunity has compiled a number of local, regional and even statewide resources for students and their families, partnering schools, partnering colleges and universities and community residents alike.  The following resources all work to create a consistent message for our community in the methods of how to Start, Stay and Succeed in college.

Whether its resources that aid in finishing high school, exploring career options, planning for post-secondary education enrollment or paying for the whole adventure, Muskegon Opportunity aims to help students and families get ready for their educational future!

We invite you to browse through these links, print off any documents that might be useful and of course contact us if you have any questions!

High-School Completion/Dropout Prevention


Academic Readiness, College Enrollment, College Aspirations and Career Exploration


Financial Readiness

Note:  Students and families have more tools than ever to decipher college prices and financial aid. College websites are required by law to have net-price calculators, to help people estimate what they would really pay, rather than relying on inflated sticker prices.

The government’s own College Navigator provides a range of information on each institution, including costs. And the Obama administration’s financial aid “shopping sheet” aims to let people make apples-to-apples comparisons among colleges, just by using consistent definitions.
