Outreach and Access
Student Support Programs at USF
At USF, we feature several student support programs designed to provide assistance to specific groups of underrepresented students. This includes first-generation, special-population and low-income students.
Student Support Services (SSS)
Student Support Services (SSS) is designed for students who have academic needs and are first-generation college students, have a low-income family status, or both. Incoming freshmen at the Tampa campus may be invited to take part in the Student Support Services program (SSS) if an academic need is determined upon initial review of the admissions application. SSS is an innovative program that provides eligible students with a rich academic, social and personal foundation beginning during the summer.
Guaranteed Admissions Pathway Program (GAPP)
The Guaranteed Admissions Pathway Program (GAPP) is designed to strengthen university-community engagement while increasing admissions opportunities for students of underserved populations. Each year, GAPP partners with schools that are working hard to close achievement gaps while increasing college readiness for students from underrepresented, first-generation and special populations.
College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP)
The College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) is administered through the Center for Migrant Education in the College of Education at USF. CAMP provides a comprehensive program designed to meet the specific needs of eligible participants from migrant and seasonal farmworker backgrounds. This program assists participants in completing the first year of college and transitioning to complete an undergraduate degree.
