Pre-College Summer Camps

Throughout the school year the CHANCE Program engages with several high school districts and various campus and community partners to introduce high school seniors to the “world of college.” Our collective efforts aim to expose students to varying programming on our university campus. During the summer months we are honored to host two camps (STEM Academy and Future Leaders in Business). These camps are FREE of charge, yet limited to a “first-come, first-served” basis. Our Pre-College Summer Programs will afford students an opportunity to be inspired and challenged by expert faculty who will introduce students to college-level learning.

Our Summer Camps have a goal to prepare high school students for success by allowing them the opportunity to experience college-level academics and immerse themselves in their selective course of study (Engineering, Business or Computer Science). Within the Computer Science component students can obtain 3-Credit Hours (upon successful completion). There is also a one-week dormitory (residential stay) for both camps. If admitted all participants are expected to stay on campus during the dorm stay.
