Designated programs should prioritize students underrepresented in higher education enrollment and completion. To facilitate this, programs should be structured to eliminate barriers to student participation. Design might therefore include, but not be limited to, tuition-free participation, open enrollment without regard to prior academic performance, student supports to promote success, scalability, multiple entry points for students, and student supports to prepare students for entry into the program.
While many of the requirements in the Part B application are similar to those requested within Part A, the expectation at this phase is that responses will not only be descriptive, but will provide evidence related to each aspect of the program, showing actual policies and materials created for the program and providing sufficient detail to demonstrate complete program planning.
We encourage you to refer to your Part A application to help you with the Part B application.
