Access 2023

The Ginsburg Center for Inclusion and Community Engagement works with Student Academic Resource Center (SARC) and  Knights Major Exploration and Transition Center (KMETC), to coordinate and execute the Access Program. These offices work together to promote student success and persistence for students in the Access Program.

The University of Central Florida will be offering the Access 2023 Summer Program in a face-to-face modality   This means that all components of the Access program will be held in person on the main UCF campus.
