Program Requirements


All Black Collegians Program participants need to meet the following criteria each semester during the  academic year:

  1. Meet with a Black Collegians Program counselor at least twice each semester.

    Students are allowed one meeting with a non-Black Collegians counselor to fulfill one counseling contact. It is the student's responsibility to provide a signed educational plan from a meeting with a non-Black Collegians counselor in order to meet the counseling contact requirement.

    Counseling sessions must be at least thirty minutes to discuss academic planning and/or personal issues. Quick questions and brief drop-in sessions will not count as a full counseling session. Drop-in counseling during the Summer and Winter sessions will count as a counseling session if the student is completing the Black Collegians program admission process.
