Mount Access Program (MAP)
The Mount Access Program (MAP) provides higher educational opportunities to students who might not otherwise continue their education. MAP is a program designed for students who show potential and motivation to succeed in college but have SAT/ACT scores and/or high school records below normal admission requirements.
MAP students pursue all academic majors offered by the college, and have continued on into graduate school and have entered professions such as accounting, education, law and medicine.
We celebrate the uniqueness of every student and believe in his or her ability to succeed. The MAP Program reflects our belief that education is a pathway to success, and our commitment that if given the opportunity, every student can achieve success.
How MAP Works
Students admitted to the MOUNT ACCESS PROGRAM are chosen not only for what they may expect to gain from their time here but also for what they can contribute to our community.
- All students accepted to MAP must attend a 2 week summer program which aims to help students strengthen academic skills, and to promote a smooth transition from high school to college.
- Students in MAP take three core academic courses, an English foundations course, and a study skills course during their first semester for a total of 12 credits.
- Successful students will be awarded the opportunity to take one 3 credit course, tuition free, over the course of the next three years.
- First year students are placed in their own section of FYE 101, taught by their faculty advisor.
- First year students receive individual academic monitoring and are expected to meet with their Advisor regularly for academic counseling and support.
