ACCESS Education Programs - WEC


Students at ComputerThe WEC program is committed to ensuring the retention and long-term success of its participants. It is designed for adult learners who would normally not be successful in a university program due to financial, academic, and/or social barriers. Examples of such barriers include low family income, single parent responsibilities, ethnicity, and lack of prerequisite academic qualifications. To that end, a number of supports and services are in place.

These include:

  • Academic Advising
  • Counseling Services
  • Education Library Resources
  • Free Tutoring Services
  • Financial Assistance
  • Student Mail Boxes
  • Student Lounge
  • Photocopying & Fax Services
