Academic Achievement Program

“AAP was essential to my success at NYU. It gave me a “home” with like minded academic achievers, who understood my culture and background…”

-2007 AAP Alumnus


The Academic Achievement Program (AAP) is a multifaceted program that is designed to develop and enhance the academic and leadership potential of Black, Latino, Native American and other underrepresented students in the College of Arts and Science and greater New York University community.

Every year, AAP has provided a family atmosphere where students can make lasting friendships, seek refuge from classes and daily stresses and push their limits to achieve their potential.
