ACCESS College Foundation was founded in 1988 to help local students and parents navigate the college admission and financial aid processes.
In 26 years, ACCESS has helped more than 45,000 students from South Hampton Roads go to college, while leveraging over $429 million in financial aid and scholarships to make their educational paths possible. The result? Changed lives, changed families, changed communities. The guidance, mentoring and financial aid sown into these students has been paid back exponentially to Hampton Roads, as these graduates return to become the doctors, lawyers, teachers, engineers, and innumerable other valuable roles our community is founded upon.
