DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A nonprofit organization that provides college and career counseling and readiness programs for students has opened a new student success center on the campus of Des Moines Area Community College in Ankeny.

The Iowa College Access Network says the new center will provide local services across a 24-county area. That will include 96 high schools and more than 45,000 students.

During the 2012-2013 academic year ICAN says it helped more than 450,000 students and parents in Iowa.

The organization provides services at most of the state's high schools offering one-on-one high school planning for college-bound students in addition to helping families fill out student aid applications and other college planning documents.
