• 2015 EOF Summer Program

    What is the EOF Summer Program?
    The EOF Summer Program is an intensive pre-college preparatory academic program designed to give first-time full-time college students an early start on their college career. The goal of the Summer Program is to introduce initial students to the academic and social demands of college life, as well as prepare students for the transition into their fall semester.
    What are the details of the 2015 EOF Summer Program?
    This summer, EOF will be offering two separate three-week summer program sessions to give students the opportunity to focus on one subject at a time. Classes for each session run Monday-Thursday from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m., followed by tutoring and workshops from 1:00-4:00 p.m. on designated days. Advisors will place students in a Reading/Writing course and/or a Mathematics course depending on their placement test scores. At the conclusion of the sessions, students will take a post-program exam with the opportunity to advance their fall placement in these subjects. Students who are accepted early will have the option to choose both sessions to maximize of this opportunity. Therefore, we strongly encourage students to submit applications by the priority deadline of June 1, 2015.
