The SummerStart program's suspension for 2019 is an intentional hiatus for the University to reevaluate options for a more focused and impactful relaunch of the program in the future. The University recognizes the positive impact of a summer bridge program, and the decision to pause the program was informed by strategic analysis and significant enrollment declines.
However, it is important to note that incoming first-year students in the Higher Education Opportunity Program and the Student Support Services program will still be admitted and fully supported during the 2019 Summer Session II with programmatic efforts similar to the former SummerStart program.
Despite the program's hiatus, the University is committed to maintaining an impactful summer experience for students supported in these two programs.
