Summer Start

Get a jump start on college with Summer Start!

KSU’s Summer Start Program is designed to provide students the opportunity get a head start on college.  Students in the program take two credit-bearing college classes – a first-year seminar course and a General Education course – during KSU’s six-week summer session and ease into campus life ahead of the hectic fall semester.

Through this intensive six-week program, students will be introduced to the rigors of college coursework while acquiring the strategies and confidence to succeed academically. Additionally, students will learn about campus resources, build a strong academic foundation, and increase the likelihood that they will achieve sophomore status by the end of their first year of college.  Co-curricular and extra-curricular activities are also offered to foster campus and peer connections.

The Summer Start Program is open to incoming first-year students who have just graduated from high school and who meet KSU’s admissions requirements. Program participation is limited and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Students in the program can choose to reside on campus during the summer program. Limited housing is available on a first-come, first-served basis and extends through the subsequent fall and spring semesters.
