TAKE ADVANTAGE OF GALVESTON COLLEGE UNIVERSAL ACCESS
The Universal Access program, implemented in the fall of 2001, has gone through many good transitions, received state and national media recognition and awards, and has remained a valuable gift to the residents of Galveston Island, Port Bolivar and Crystal Beach since its inception.
The Galveston College Universal Access program can be a benefit to all high school, home schooled or GED graduates, and it has already assisted in the education of more than 4,000 individuals supported by funds exceeding $4.9 million.
This reminder comes at a time when Galveston College celebrates its 45th anniversary of service to the community, and recruits students for its 2012 summer sessions and fall semester.
If you or members of your family may be thinking of attending a 4-year college or university away from Galveston Island, we invite you to consider the Universal Access option in case your plans change. Even if you are already attending college elsewhere, but return to the island for the summer, you may be eligible for Universal Access for summer coursework.
The Universal Access program is an exceptional feature of the Galveston College
Foundation and Galveston College that exists in part due to the generosity of local businesses, individuals and foundations. The existing $3.1 million Universal Access endowment combined with federal Pell awards creates a unique “tuition assistance” program.
