Making the Transition from High School to College
College is a first step into the world of adulthood. Whether you are living on campus or commuting in the fall, your success is ultimately up to you. While we are here to help and guide you, you are going to be expected to make responsible decisions this week and into the semester.
The reality is that this program is a conditional acceptance program. If a student does not participate and earn a "C" for the week, they are jeopardizing their matriculation into the fall semester. Students are expected to make the most of this week by participating. This week helps students make a smooth transition to college level work and assists students in understanding the expectations that go along with college.
This program is designed to give you a head start on making this important transition in your life. The work you experience this week will be just as demanding as the classes you have scheduled for the fall semester.
