College Success Program

Program Description

The College Success Program is comprised of four individual programs that provide college access, readiness, and success services to students who are traditionally underrepresented on college campuses.

    • AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination)

    • The Early Identification Program (EIP)
    • Pathway to the Baccalaureate and Pathway Connection
