UCAN – Unlocking College Academics Now

The UCAN program – “Unlocking College Academics Now” – helps students facing a first academic suspension improve their grade point average and thereby continue their education. The program meets this goal by helping these students identify their individual academic needs and then develop skills to meet their academic goals. To meet these goals, the UCAN program offers students the opportunity to remain in school during their first suspension, rather than sitting out a semester.
