Promise Scholars Services


Counseling and Advising

  • Promise Scholars have access to one-on-one academic, financial aid, career, and personal counseling and advisement.

By fostering transformation in the four key areas of Personal Growth, Academic Development, Professional Development, and Personal Health and Well-being, CAP helps Promise Scholars become self-empowered to achieve at UConn and beyond.
