KSU Accelerate Summer Program
The KSU Accelerate summer bridge program aims to serve as an accelerated supplemental instruction model designed to prepare participating students to enter credit-bearing coursework in the first semester of college; thus, improving the transition into gateway coursework impacting retention, progression, and minimizing time to degree. This program is critical for incoming freshmen as these students spent a significant portion of their high school tenure learning remotely. The residential bridge program is designed as a two-week pre-orientation and academic immersion experience targeted to academically underprepared students in English, math, and/or reading and first-year admits entering with less than a 2.5 cumulative HS GPA (i.e. students required to enter into a learning contract).
Program learning objectives allows participants:
- To meet readiness benchmarks in English, math, and/or reading at the conclusion of the program via developmental coursework in a workshop setting.
- Acclimate to the KSU campus and Frankfort community.
- Engage with other first-year admits, upperclassmen, staff, faculty, and administrators to maximize connectedness and belonging.
- Develop the necessary skills for college success via academic planning, study strategies, leadership/student involvement opportunities, and become familiar with other support resources.
