We're excited to offer a summer transition experience to freshmen accepted through the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP). Traditionally, students enrolled through this program take three years to earn an associate degree, and five years for a bachelor's degree, but the Summer Prep Academy will potentially allow you to enroll directly into your degree program without the added year. This will occur by bridging your last math course (high school) with your first math course in the major you have chosen and potentially reduce your time to earn a degree.
The Prep Academy is an inclusive four-week experience designed to enhance your skills in math, reading, writing, and studying (the foundations for college success). You will be introduced to the campus, participate in activities during the day and the evening, and will take care of necessary items to be prepared for your first year. A career exploration will also be available for students who are undecided or may be interested in changing their major.
Summer Prep Academy presents you, the student, with a number of opportunities, including:
Once your college enrollment deposit has been paid, you will need to register for Summer Orientation which automatically signs you up for Summer Prep Academy.
For students entering fall 2017
The cost for EOP students is covered as part of each student's required EOP programming after receiving confirmed acceptance into the EOP program.
Summer program includes: All meals, activities, initial summer supplies, and housing.
Transportation is not provided to and from the summer program. Please consider these options in planning your trip.
