AACC is committed to enhancing programs and services for students who are the first in their families to attend college, who need to build a foundation for success in college-level classes, and who are low income or an ethnic minority, to meet their academic goals. One of the objectives of Student Achievement and Success Program (SASP) is to enhance student success by identifying SASP students who meet the eligibility requirements and award them an incentive scholarship.
