APEX Scholars

A Bridge to Academic Success


APEX Scholars is an alternative admission program designed to assist students with admission to and graduation from Wayne State University.  The program is based on the philosophy that students who are interested, committed, and willing to invest the time, can succeed academically when provided with appropriate support services.  


The mission: 

APEX Scholars is to provide an academic bridge to the successful completion of undergraduate studies at Wayne State University.  In this quest, we will strengthen the cognitive abilities of students; encourage a thirst for knowledge; model and demand a disciplined approach to learning; and enhance student achievement by assuring access to a committed staff that provides effective supportive services, leading to a structured path of academic success.


Vision Statement:

APEX Scholars will be known by their ability, led by conscience, driven to succeed in the face of challenge, determined to serve others, and accomplish much with confidence and humility. 

From DCE… to APEX Scholars Business Philosopher Jim Rohn once said, “You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.”
