ETS is a nonprofit, federally funded program designed to encourage students to complete high school and assist them in entering and completing an educational program beyond HS. ETS is FREE. Students must apply to be in ETS and typically qualify if neither parent has obtained a four-year degree. Another factor for qualification is income. Any interested students are encouraged to apply to see if they qualify.

An ETS representative visits USC High School two times a month to do classroom presentations and/or to meet with students individually. This service enhances the services provided by the USC Guidance Counselor and provides first-generation college bound students with the extra help or support they may need in navigating through this big decision-making process.

Applications are available in the HS Office. You can visit the ETS website by clicking the link below or contact them directly at the following address:
