  3. provide instruction (i.e., academic and college-readiness skills) and advising support to ensure that students function successfully in postsecondary education; and

  4. provide students access to degree-bearing college credit courses at no cost through participation in the Transition program.

Eligibility: Eligible applicants are the community colleges funded in FY15.
