Welcome to Successful Transition and Readiness (STAR) Programs! Our STAR Success Team is here to assist you and your family in navigating the world of college. Our programs specifically focus on first-generation college students and students admitted through the First PACE admission program.

In October 2015, the university developed STAR in response to national literature on student success which indicates that it is imperative for colleges and universities to have innovative, proactive student services in place in order to help students progress and graduate from college. STAR is committed to helping students enter USCA, progress both academically and culturally into the college community, and graduate ready to pursue successful careers.

We look forward to you being a part of Successful Transition and Readiness (STAR) Programs!
