ASAP is a free, comprehensive program designed to help motivated students stay on track and earn their degrees on time.

College is hard work, and students have multiple responsibilities to juggle while earning their degrees. 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 provides eligible students with academic, personal and financial support to help them graduate in no more than three years.

In addition to the support services available to all students, ASAP students receive:

  • A dedicated advisor to guide their progress from entry to graduation.
  • A monthly stipend for eight months out of the year.
  • A cost of attendance award will be applied to fees associated with tuition.  
  • Textbook assistance to reduce, or eliminate, the cost of textbooks.
  • Special registration options that help them get the classes they need that fit their schedules.
  • The chance to build career development competencies with our Career and Transfer counselors and academic support services.
  • The opportunity to take classes with fellow ASAP students to foster and build their networks.
