ABOUT US

OFFICE OF ACADEMIC SUPPORT

Welcome to the Office of Academic Support (OAS) for Undergraduate Affairs! OAS is home to academic and supplemental services for undergraduate students at the University of Florida. We have four leading student success programs and initiatives: UF PROMISE (formerly known as the AIM program), TRIO Student Support Services (UF SSS), the Leadership Advancement Program for 2 years (LAP-2), and the PUSH4IT! Initiative. Our programs and services, ranging from freshman to senior year, help us provide students with comprehensive support to enhance the skills necessary to reach their full potential every step of the way. We are a resource to all undergraduate students at UF with an emphasis on helping first-generation and/or Pell-eligible students meet their academic, personal and professional goals. 

What do our services look like? We provide academic tutoring in addition to materials for enhancing coursework performance. We also host student development events such as workshops, guest speakers from UF and other undergraduate institutions, financial literacy seminars, mental health and wellness education, and networking socials. These events vary; they cater to either general undergraduate interests or specific majors. Lastly, we offer honorary award certificates, scholarships, financial support, peer mentorship, and professional advising. Most importantly, OAS is a community for students to feel at home away from home.

We partner with other University of Florida campus entities such as UF Admissions, Housing and Residence Education, Student Financial Affairs, the Academic Advising Center, McNair Scholars Program, Career Connections Center, GatorWell, Academic Technology and more to make these opportunities both relevant and innovative.
