College Access & First Year Transition is made up of various programs to assist future and current students at Weber State University.


We specialize in giving underrepresented students additional assistance with ACCESS, which includes the admissions process, the FAFSA application, ensuring students are enrolled in the right academic programs, and work with their designated Academic Advisors based on their declared major. We also assist with TRANSITION by providing the following programming:

SPECIAL POPULATIONS

Special Populations includes youth from: foster care, juvenile justice, refugee populations, and students who are experiencing homelessness. Our goal is to connect with these students from their agencies or non-profit, and ensure they successfully transition and are retained at WSU. We also work to connect these students to additional funding streams for scholarships and financial support.
