A-STEP Program for Working Adults

The A-STEP (Academic Support Through the Employment Process) program aims to provide adults in North Florida access to post-secondary education opportunities to elevate earning potential and job security by securing industry credentials and certifications. The key to the A-STEP program is providing each participant with one-on-one support from start to finish of their educational or skills training program.

Along with intensive case management, College Navigators offer A-STEP participants personalized financial aid advice, ongoing academic support, gap funding and job retention services up to 90 days to put adults on the path to success and long-term sustainability. Enrollment is simple!
