Financial Support and Assistance
Students are eligible to apply for academic scholarships, emergency loan funds, and book loans through MCAS. These programs are offered to students on a semester basis, but students must meet the eligibility requirements for each program.
The Multicultural Center for Academic Success sponsors a series of educational, cultural, and social events designed to foster students’ personal, professional, leadership, and academic development.
Family meetings are held three times a semester each academic year. These meetings provide students an opportunity to network with other students over dinner. Students also receive development workshops on a wide range of topics, such as time management, resume writing, STEM towards Success, and Co-op opportunities.
Star Awards is an end of the year event that celebrates the accomplishments of MCAS graduates and students above a 3.0. The event also presents awards recognizing the leadership and contributions of leaders to clubs, organizations, and departments.
Professional Development Series
The Professional Development Series is designed to educate students on a wide range of topics, such as Financial Literacy, Dining and Professional Etiquette, Communication, and Personal Presence.
Academic Support and Coaching
Professional staff are available to provide one-on-one advising and coaching to students on personal and social matters, to make referrals to other campus and community resources as appropriate, to monitor academic progress and recommend strategies for improving academic performances.
