A.C.C.E.S.S. Program

Our A.C.C.E.S.S. (Achieving Cypress College Educational Student Success) program is one way to inform students of the support services available to them. A.C.C.E.S.S. in the English 60 classroom is designed to engage students to think critically about the various student support services and programs available, produce written articulation of their analysis and observations, and encourage internalization and ownership of the information that they have gathered.
