ACT 101

Act 101 is a state-supported program designed to foster academic success and leadership ability in Pennsylvania residents with certain academic and financial needs. Participants are undergraduate students in the College of Arts & Sciences and are typically identified by CCAS and invited into the program before or shortly after they begin their first semester of study. Many Act 101 students begin with the EQUIP pre-college summer program and continue with an individualized program of tutoring, counseling, advising, and developmental reading and writing courses. Eligible students who do not attend EQUIP may get involved with Act 101 after admission. Act 101 students enjoy special social activities, academic recognition events, and opportunities to participate in events with other schools throughout the state.  Contact CCAS for further information.

To be eligible for ACT 101, you must:

  • Be a Pennsylvania resident.
  • Demonstrate academic need based on admission requirements.
  • Have an adjusted maximum allowable family income that meets current program guidelines outlined by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

For more information, contact the Cushing Center for Academic Support office.
