Summer Bridge Success Story 

 

Project Success

Project Success is an intensive academic program for students who place slightly below the University’s admission standards. The program is designed to provide students the opportunity to “sharpen their academic skill set” by completing up to six (6) credits during six weeks in the summer and participating in a comprehensive academic development learning community throughout the first year. Students with a cumulative high school GPA of 2.0 combined with a SAT score between 750 and 799 may be offered a “conditional acceptance” upon enrollment and successful completion of the Project Success summer program component. Students are extended this offer at the discretion of the Office of Admissions, as seats in the program are limited. “Conditional Admission” status will be removed upon achieving satisfactory academic status of at least a 2.0 GPA at the end of the first year.
