Get On Track Early
To increase academic success and retention amongst the transfer student population, the Jump Start Summer Transfer Program helps foster stronger connections between transfer students and our campus.
In addition to attending transfer orientation and meeting with an academic advisor to register for fall classes, students also begin coursework early and meet peers in their cohort. Jump Start programs include a peer mentoring experience and other social events tailored to foster connection and belongingness.
Current Jump Start Degree Programs
- College of HRSM
- College of Information & Communications (Broadcast Journalism, Journalism, Mass Communications, Public Relations & Visual Communications)
- College of Arts & Sciences (Biology, Psychology, Economics, Math, Statistics, and Chemistry)
*Jump Start is currently being expanded to include various majors. Please check back for future major offerings as they are added.
