University Access Programs

Main Content


University Access Programs are designed to assist in student access to the University’s academic, cultural and recreational activities. Each student has a unique need for services. The staff takes great care to evaluate student needs and recommend services designed to address those needs. Empowering students to choose success is what UAP is all about. It is our goal to provide the type of assistance that affords students, regardless of their background or disability, an equal opportunity to succeed in college-level studies. This mission fully embraces the overarching mission of Abilene Christian University, educating students for Christian service and leadership throughout the world.
