Guided Pathway Support
The Guided Pathway Support Program (GPS) is a virtual college and scholarship advising program for African American high school juniors and seniors. The program invites students and parents to our online college access community for counseling and application support at no charge. The program does not have an application deadline and serves students throughout the calendar year.
A free program called Hoos First Look. Hoos First Look is a three-day, two-night, all-expense paid program designed to allow around 20 low-income and/or first-generation high school juniors to visit the University of Virginia and make them more competitive applicants in the admission process.
Hoos First Look will take place on November 5-7, 2021.
