What happens after I apply to ASAP?
Once your application has been received and reviewed, we will contact you to set up an interview with our staff to discuss your goals, our program services, and how these things may or may not fit your needs. It’s your chance to learn more about who we are and what we do, as well as our chance to gauge your willingness and readiness to become an active participant in our program.
I have been accepted to the Academic Student Achievement Program, so what do I do?
The first thing to do is to meet with one of our counselors to sign your TRiO-SSS contract. This is a short, 15-minute meeting to confirm that you understand what we offer and what we will expect of you in order to help you achieve your goals. We recommend ongoing appointments with your counselor, as those who are closer to their counselors tend to feel more connected to the program and perform better academically. Each student must meet with a counselor at least once biweekly; more if needed.
