Summer Start Program

Incoming freshman accepted into the HEOP and Young Scholars programs are required to enroll and attend a 6-week, on-campus summer program of intensive academic, social, and cultural experiences to ease your transition to college. All student access and achievement required paperwork must be completed, submitted and received by the college by June 12th. Students are required to live on campus and only leave campus with summer start staff throughout the summer program. Successful completion of the summer start program is required for incoming freshmen to begin fall classes.

Timing: June 28 - August 7, 2020

During the summer program, you are required to take a minimum of six credit hours of coursework that will count toward graduation requirements. Summer schedules will be based on your academic performance and your intended major. The following courses are offered during the Summer Program:
