Thrive is a nationally award-winning program that helps qualified incoming first-year students develop the academic skills required to maintain  the HOPE scholarship, integrate academically and socially to the university, progress toward graduation, and develop leadership skills.

Thrive students maintain the HOPE scholarship at substantially higher rates than demographically matched groups. This free program offers support to students as they transition into college by offering the best of academic strategies with innovative practices of student success.

The program application will open in January 2018 for students entering KSU as first-time, full-time students in Fall 2018.
