International Access at Pace

International Access at Pace (IAP) is a supplemental academic support program to ensure that our students succeed academically during their first year at Pace University. This program focuses on educational access and helps our students move forward in their university careers. It takes place at the New York city campus for the duration of your first year and includes both the Fall and Spring semesters.

Students selected for this program will have regular meetings with their advisor to support their academic progress for their first two semesters ensuring a strong academic transition to college level work.For more information, Visit the International Academic Support website.
