MISSION:  To increase college participation and success for historically underrepresented and first generation students, through partnerships with schools in our community. Working alongside students as they pursue and successfully complete post-secondary education, we provide targeted support and connections from the end of their senior year in high school through their first year at WSU.

If you are an undocumented student or a parent/guardian of an undocumented student, please visit Weber State's new webpage Resources for Undocumented Students to learn about admissions, paying for school, and other community resources that may be of help to you and your family.
