College Access Program

College Access Program (CAP) identifies and recruits high-risk underrepresented students who show promise of success. Over the course of the summer bridge program, students participate in a residential summer program that serves as an intense transition from high-school to post-secondary. Students are challenged to identify problematic areas, and collectively with staff, incorporate learned strategies for increased success throughout their academic careers.

The College Access Program provides a structured program that addresses multiple concerns of underrepresented students attending Minnesota high schools. Participants develop multicultural knowledge and skills to live effectively in a pluralistic society.

What the College Access Program does:

  • We work with underrepresented students of various ethnic, cultural and economic backgrounds.
  • We provide planned activities which address the unique needs of urban and rural underrepresented students.
  • We may provide provisional admittance for high school seniors to Minnesota State University, Mankato.
  • We provide year-round advising and tutoring to all participants.
  • We maintains a two-year academic performance contract with our students.
