Academics

All students in the Summer Start Program will be enrolled in two courses for a total of six credit hours: a first-year seminar and a General Education course.

First-Year Seminar: The first-year seminar, which meets KSU’s first-year curriculum requirement, is designed to help students succeed academically by introducing them to the rigors of college coursework while helping them to develop academic success strategies, enhance their life skills as independent adults, facilitate connections with the campus and community, and establish the foundations for global learning.  The course seeks to guide students through the transition from high school to higher education in a structured and intentional fashion.

General Education Course: All students must satisfy their General Education requirement, which includes courses from a variety of disciplines. The following General Education courses will be available to Summer Start students:

  • MATH 1111:  College Algebra
  • MUSI 1107:  Music in Society
  • POLS 1101:  American Government
  • WELL 1000: Foundations for Healthy Living

The courses will be held during the six-week summer session, which starts on June 8, 2017, and concludes on July 18, 2017.

Final exams will be held July 19 through July 20, 2017.
