Summer Developmental Program
Developmental Program is a nine week summer enrichment program designed to
enhance the academic skills of students who do not meet all criteria for
admission into Mississippi’s eight
public universities. Qualified students
will take course work in English, mathematics and reading.
This program will include classroom
instruction, seminar, career counseling/mentoring, as well as,
computer-assisted tutorials. In addition, the students will receive counseling and support needed to
matriculate successfully in the academic and social community of the
university. These courses will not
count toward graduation. However, with
successful completion of the Summer Developmental Program, the student will be
able to enroll as a freshman in Fall Semester 2014. Students who failed to meet the exit
requirements for 2014 Summer Developmental Program will be advised of other
educational alternatives and will be assisted in pursuing those options.
The year-long academic support program will be required of those
students who successfully complete the 2014 Summer Developmental Program. The program is designed to assist those
students admitted with academic deficiencies, as well as other volunteer students, with their freshman courses.
