The Titan Advantage Program (TAP) is an intensive program designed to provide incoming first-year students with all the secrets to success to make their journey to college the experience of a lifetime. The program runs for six weeks during the summer on the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh campus. Through individualized instruction and support, TAP provides students with a map of how to successfully transition from high school to college and achieve success. TAP students are learning from and engaging with dedicated faculty, staff and peer mentors committed to preparing students and creating an environment that supports their growth, development and academic success in college.
