Jumpstart Your College Education By Enrolling in the catalyst program

Catalyst Program August 9-22, 2024

Incoming freshmen are invited to campus two weeks before the start of the school year to complete a general education course. By doing so, students get acclimated to campus, make new friends, develop study skills and ease their academic workloads – all before the semester officially begins.
