Center Description: Our center provides guidance and information for students interested in studying at Tertiary Institutions in the United States. We offer monthly introductory information sessions, visit local high schools, and offer follow-up group advising sessions to students who have attended an introductory information session. USAP:United States Student Achievers Program was introduced in 2006, and Opportunity Funding in 2007. These programs target outstanding but disadvantaged students and provide more intensive mentoring and assistance throughout the application process.
