College and Career Success Program
The Access College and Career Success Program is made available to all Access Scholars. College and Career Success Advisors visit thirteen college campuses across Virginia: George Mason University, Longwood University, Norfolk State University, Old Dominion University, Radford University, Regent University, Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia State University, Virginia Wesleyan University, and the four campuses of Tidewater Community College. Advisors serve scholars both on campus and virtually for those that attend other schools. Access Scholars benefit from the support services of their College and Career Success Advisor through FAFSA filing, meeting students one-on-one and group counseling, acting as a liaison with college departments and advocating for their educational, mental, and personal needs.
The College and Career Success Advisors also assist our junior and senior Scholars with various career development tools to help improve the odds that they will receive an internship and full-time employment upon graduating college. The College and Career Success team also provides continuous updates that include information on interview and resume training skills, as well as hosting internship and job skills workshops with community partners.
