ACCESS 2021 Financial Aid Night for Seniors

In September, ACCESS hosted Virtual Financial Aid Nights to help our seniors receive money for college. Watch the playback for an informative presentation on financial aid.



ACCESS College Foundation was founded in 1988 to eliminate barriers to postsecondary education and increase college attainment for underrepresented and low-income students.

Since 1988, ACCESS has helped more than 73,000 students from low-income families enroll in a certification or degree program while leveraging $720 million in financial aid and scholarships. Additionally, ACCESS has awarded more than $11 million in ACCESS "Last-Dollar" Scholarships to students, helping to make their educational paths possible. Over the last 32 years, ACCESS has proven that through guidance, mentorship, and financial assistance, Hampton Roads’ brightest students can achieve their educational dreams - regardless of their background.   As these graduates return home, they contribute to the vitality of our community, as the doctors, lawyers, teachers, and engineers of tomorrow.



We provide educational pathways leading to certification or college degree attainment and
career opportunities for students, particularly those who may not otherwise have access.


We will give every desiring student the opportunity to enrich their lives
and our communities through training and education beyond high school.
