Educational Support Program

The Educational Support Program (ESP) is a federally-funded, comprehensive support program for first-generation and limited-income college students. The goal of the program is to offer every possible form of support for participants along their journey to graduation from Grand Valley State University.

Through the program, participants are assigned an advisor and have access to peer mentors who can help them achieve success while in college.

We provide a number of services including: academic advising, scheduling assistance, study skills assistance, time management assistance, secondary admission assistance, financial aid counseling, career counseling, graduate school counseling, personal counseling and study abroad advising.
