The Academic Development Program is a special admissions program for students who do not meet current admissions criteria but who still show the potential to succeed in college.

Students admitted to the program complete a five week summer session to assist them in developing academic skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. In addition, the program provides academic support through academic advising, tutoring, mentoring and academic monitoring, and counseling. Students who successfully complete the summer session enter the fall semester with increased academic confidence and familiarity with the campus culture and university procedures.

Enthusiastic Role Models & Mentors Needed!
