About the Office of Student Access

The Office of Student Access within the Office of Research and Graduate Studies is funded through the United States Department of Education grants. The aim of OSA is to provide support services designed to help students achieve success throughout their academic journeys. Programs are participant-centered and guided by research-based practices designed to serve low-income and first generation students. Our programs serve nearly 5100 participants throughout the greater South Texas Coastal region.
