College is hard work, and you have multiple responsibilities to juggle while earning your degree. Due to a variety of stressors and responsibilities, too many community college students are not able to complete their associate degrees in a timely manner, if at all. ASAP is designed to help motivated community college students stay on track and graduate on time. If you’re selected for the program, we’ll provide you with academic, social and financial support to help you graduate in no more than three years.
"Being in ASAP was an awesome opportunity which made it possible to get free transportation, free textbooks, free tutoring services, and the most valuable group of Academic Advisors who treat us as their family, and dedicated their precious time in helping us plan our careers and futures." - Khalid
All majors are eligible, except undeclared nursing, physical therapy assistant, occupational therapy assistant, EMT, radiology, dietetic technician and certificate programs. Please note that you cannot participate in both SEEK/College Discovery and ASAP.
"Being part of ASAP made me feel that I was never alone. I always felt that I had a place to go to whether I needed emotional support, or an extra push to make me work harder. The feeling of anxiety that I would not live up to my full potential because of my setback, quickly deteriorated thanks to this program." - Selma
To apply, simply follow these steps.
Program slots are limited. Complete the steps as soon as possible to be considered.
"ASAP has been helping us to explore our potentials, to dare to do more in order to afford our dreams." - Yunxi
