"Research shows that students who complete a FAFSA are more likely to go on to college," said Rachel Ruiz, UTSA assistant vice president for P-20 initiatives. "The Office of P-20 Initiatives is committed to increasing access to higher education through our outreach programs."
Manuel Maldonado from the Office of P-20 Initiatives and representatives from the admissions and financial aid offices will staff the UTSA Mobile Go Center.
"The selected sites are high schools across South Texas that can benefit from our additional assistance in removing barriers to higher education based on previous data," said Belinda Saldana, director of community outreach in the UTSA Office of P-20 Initiatives. "We look forward to visiting more South Texas communities and informing students about UTSA through our UTSA Mobile Go Center outreach efforts."
