ACCESS Orientation

What is the ACCESS Orientation Program?

The ACCESS Orientation Program provides information to students and their parents in reference to the colleges and schools of the University, the Morgan State University student experience, financial aid including FAFSA information, placement testing, academic advisement, and career development. Additionally, students will participate in online and virtual activities and workshops to include topics such as college transition, school spirit, study skills, and time management strategies. Participation in this program provides activities and interactions with faculty, professional staff and classmates, which will help students have a successful first year. It is expected that at the end of the ACCESS Orientation Program students will have all the necessary tools and resources required for their Fall enrollment at the University, as well as for their first year of academic success. The ACCESS Orientation Program pledges to increase access to college for a diverse student population, prepare students for their college matriculation, and provide a head start for students on the path to academic success. It is expected that the campus-wide ACCESS Orientation Program for freshmen which incorporates best practices in higher education will yield outstanding results for the entire undergraduate student population.
