Office of Access &
Academic Enrichment

Our Programs & Services 

The Office of Access and Academic Enrichment (OAAE) administers programs that have been nationally recognized for the outstanding academic support services they offer to University at Albany students.

Our academic programs include:

We also run UAlbany's chapter of the Chi Alpha Epsilon Honor Society and support the Multicultural High School Achievers Award Program, which is managed by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. 

Additionally, our team offers study groups, career workshops, mentoring, tutoring, educational programming and other support services to UAlbany students.


Support Our Mission 

We are incredibly grateful for the support of our donors, without whom we could not meet the needs of our students. 

Our programs are largely funded by state and federal appropriations, which are vulnerable to cutbacks in times of financial distress. Your donations support our academic programs and workshops, and help UAlbany students afford textbooks, laptops and other educational necessities. 

If you haven’t already, please consider making a gift(Please specify the Office of Access & Academic Enrichment in the online giving form’s comments section or in your check’s memo.) 

Thank you for supporting the Office of Access & Academic Enrichment!
