Nationally, fewer than 15% of first generation students from low-income households
graduate from college.
A college diploma seems out of reach for many students from low-income families. Our non-selective college success initiative UtmostU offers a comprehensive approach to guide students throughout the entire college journey and earn their degree.
We provide each student a smartphone and mobile plan keep critical communication lines open and also ensure students can access critical online resources. Use of an electronic contact management system allows UtmostU staff to be informed in real time and assist students with any challenges they face.
We form lasting partnerships with rigorous college preparation high schools and University staff to ease the college transition and ensure our students are surrounded by the right people to help them earn their degree.
