Transitioning from high school to college can be challenging for students for a variety of reasons. To help alleviate these challenges, Seawolf Success students meet with the Transition Advisor to discuss questions or concerns regarding the college experience at UAA. The Transition Advisor specializes in helping first and second year students make the transition from high school to college. The advisor provides support for students who are struggling to juggle their classes, prepare for exams, balance work and school, or identify different resources available on campus.
During the Summer Seawolf Success Academy, incoming Seawolf Success students connect with high achieving, upperclass mentors from the AHAINA Student Program.
