The Summer Experience will be two weeks, Monday – Friday from 8:30 – 1:00.
Dates: August 5 – 16, 2019
Enjoy your summer! Staff will reach out to you by email with next steps throughout the summer.
Registration will close July 8th.
You need to have 15 units, or plan to be enrolled in 15 units by the time the summer experience begins.
Students who are receiving accommodations may take fewer units. We will work directly with DSPS to ensure students are supported.
While 12 units is considered full-time, think of 15 units as being “on-time.” One of CRC’s goals is to support students to reach their goal in 2 years; and since most degrees and transfer require 60 units, taking 15 units a semester will get students out “on-time.”
Additionally, students who are taking 15 units a semester may qualify for the Student Success Completion Grant.
Research also shows that students who take 15 units have higher GPAs, and are more likely to continue (persist).
In order to receive the textbook assistance benefit, you must attend the full two weeks.
You will be placed into a math and English class that matches your strength in both subjects. These classes are interactive – it’s not your traditional math and English class - and are designed to refresh and strengthen your skills to get you ready for college-level math and English!
There is also a “College Skills” class, and this class is about navigating the campus, learning about resources, and using your strengths to support your success. You will be connected with Peer Mentors and other staff. It’s a great way to get connected and start to feel like you are a part of the CRC community.
Benefits of participating in the Summer Experience include:
And...it will be fun.
Lunch will be provided each day of the two week Summer Experience.
