Meet Our Team

It’s a pleasure to meet you!

The Ursuline College Accelerated Program (UCAP) knows that returning to college can be intimidating.  Here, you will not need to stand in long lines, get transferred from department to department, or simply get lost in the shuffle.

UCAP was developed with you in mind.  The admission counselor is here to help you navigate the admission process and register you for your first semester.  At that time, you will be introduced to the academic advisor that you will then work with until you graduation.  The UCAP staff can also serve as a liaison to you as you navigate other departments on campus. The dedicated team is here to assist you through the entire process.

Hopefully you’ve gotten to know us a bit with the information provided below. Now help us get to know you better be requesting some information, or scheduling a campus visit today!
