Accelerating success

If you're like most students, you'd agree that the purpose of your college education is:

  1.  to become the best version of yourself you can be
  2.  to discover and prepare for a career that will be a good fit for you, that will allow you to do amazing things in your life and for your community and the world

The people, programs and courses in University College aim to help you do both! 

By building your connections to other students and mentors, tapping into all the support resources for you at ASU, and investing time in developing greater emotional intelligence , critical thinking skills, and career awareness, you'll come away with personal and intellectual confidence, a positive academic self-concept, and an understanding of what motivates you — as well as strategies and a resilient mindset you can apply throughout your life.

Your fellow students have pretty amazing things to say about their experiences in University College courses, in peer tutoring and coaching sessions, and early-start programs like Bridging Success for Former Foster Youth. Take the time to invest in yourself and your future!

Sheets, blankets, towels, laundry supplies, personal toiletries, maybe a bike and a printer — the cost of college life essentials can add up.

As Arizona State University has worked to expand access to higher education, it has added services to support students who need a boost, including specialized peer coaching.
