The Jump Scholars Program allows incoming freshman students the opportunity to get a JUMP start on their college experience by participating in a three week, success camp experience. The Jump scholars program allows students to register in one of three different intersession classes. The program is designed to allow incoming first year students time and support during through their transition to college life.
Students live in their freshman residence hall, enroll in one academic course, and participate in weekly success presentations and community building programs. The academic success workshops are held throughout the program to teach students strong academic success skills and allow students to adjust to campus life before the start of the fall semester.
Still have questions or want to know more? We are hosting an Jump Scholars Informational session on April 22, 2021 at 6:00pm CST via Zoom! Link will be sent to all who register for the event!
**Courses offered for the Jump Scholars program are tentatively announced and are subject to change.**

Participants may be expected to wear a mask or facial covering that covers their mouth and nose while on campus. Guidelines may be in place that require social distancing and/or limited attendance. Additional information will be provided and updated as Covid-19 guidelines change.
Fall 2021 tuition, housing, and meal plan costs cover the August 2021 intersession period. There is no additional cost for the program, except for textbook costs and personal expenses.
The program is included in the full 2021-2022 academic year so scholarships will go toward covering semester costs!
If you have dual enrollment for each of the classes offered, the Jump program might not be the best fit. Participants are required to select one of the Jump course sections offered during the intersession period.
Jump scholars will move into their fall housing assignments prior to the program starting!
