SUCCESS Program

Are you:

  • The first member of your family to attend college?
  • Feeling that you arrived at college unprepared for the challenge?
  • A non-native English speaker?
  • From a disadvantaged background?
  • A returning adult student?
  • Attending college with the help of financial aid?
  • Relying on public transportation to get you to and from school?
  • Enrolled in at least 3 credit hours at the Bethlehem campus?

If you answered yes to two or more of these questions, you might be a great candidate for a special program called SUCCESS.
