Student Success Initiatives

Our student success programs are some of the best in the nation. The gap between students who are involved in our programs and those who are not is significant. 

As we look to the next ten years, we know that the populations we serve so well, first generation, transfer, underserved, minority, foster youth, non-traditional and students without means will grow in Orange County and on campus. 

In six years we have increased the number of students served ten-fold, to where today, one out of every eight students at UCI uses our services. The demand is astounding and is only getting larger. We are great at what we do, but we need more resources to meet even the current demand on campus.  

$100 = tutoring scholarship for one student

$250 = textbooks for a student for a quarter

$500= one on one academic counseling for a student

$1,500 = a student success award giving access to over 50 resources to help them succeed 

Our work leads to greater learning outcomes, higher graduation and retention rates and gives students tools they use to succeed in their careers. Join us today to make a difference.
