Pre-College Programs

These federally funded programs provide services to low-income and first-generation students to inspire them to complete their secondary education and enter into postsecondary education. These programs are responsible for services, activities, objectives and academic achievement, as well as conceptualizing new programming to enhance middle and high school participants’ academic development and success.

College Programs

These federally funded programs assist low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented college students with persisting in their degree programs, earning postsecondary credentials, and enrolling in post-baccalaureate studies. While promoting high quality undergraduate experience through research, conference travel, civic engagement and service-learning, financial assistance and counseling, and many other services, these programs significantly contribute to institutional efforts for persistence, retention, and graduation.
