BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (Feb. 27, 2017) — Western Kentucky University’s Summer Early Entry (SEE) allows students to complete developmental courses during the summer so they are fully prepared to take courses in the fall.
SEE is a five-week program where students live on the WKU campus, meet with tutors and take developmental math and/or English courses, including Math 096 or English 055. They can also complete a university experience course (UCC 175) and Math 109 for credit. SEE students get to know WKU faculty and staff, as well as other students through social activities and events.
Developmental courses are required for any student with ACT scores below 16 in English or below 20 in Math.
“These developmental courses are important to preparing students for their English and math coursework,” said Alicia Bingham, program coordinator of WKU Summer Sessions. “By taking them through Summer Early Entry, students have everything they need to successfully start coursework in the fall.”
Carlous Yates, director of student support programs, said resources include hands-on support like tutoring, access to computer labs, programming and weekly meetings with peer mentors to help them meet Cornerstone requirements.
The program fee includes 6-7 hours of tuition, campus housing, meal plans, M.A.S.T.E.R. Plan and social activities/events. Program dates are July 10-Aug. 10, and applications are available online at www.wku.edu/see/app.php. Financial aid, housing and meal plans are also available. For information, visit www.wku.edu/see.
