The Academic Advancement Program (AAP) provides an array of academic services that encourage and promote academic achievement and excellence by offering support to students from groups historically underserved in higher education.

AAP eligible students will receive information on how to become an AAP Member by completing an AAP Orientation workshop. The orientation focuses on the history, mission and relevance of AAP and its services. It also helps students navigate the UCLA environment to achieve academic success.
