Summer program at Seminole State offers free math class, support for new college students

The Summer Bridge Math Academy begins June 20 at Seminole State's Sanford/Lake Mary Campus. The application deadline is June 4.

First-time-in-college students can get a head start on their college education with a free math class offered through the Summer Bridge Math Academy at Seminole State College of Florida.

The summer program, available through TRIO Connections of Central Florida, a grant program that supports those who are enrolling in college for the first time, allows students to complete Intermediate Algebra (MAT 1033) and receive the course textbook for free. Students who enroll in the Summer Bridge Math Academy will also benefit from weekly tutoring sessions and participation in TRIO workshops covering topics such as study skills, time management and financial literacy.

“We’re excited to offer this program to new students,” said Summer Bernini, educational planner and outreach coordinator at Seminole State. “Research shows that students who receive assistance while taking their first math class continue in their studies and progress in their academic careers. This program is also a great way for students to become aware of all the support that is available to them at Seminole State.”

The Summer Bridge Math Academy begins June 20 at Seminole State’s Sanford/Lake Mary Campus. The application deadline is June 4. To participate in the program, students must:

  • Apply and be accepted to Seminole State
  • Complete the Summer Bridge Math Academy application
  • Complete a TRIO intake form
  • Complete the 2017-18 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and submit their 2017-18 Student Aid Report (available after FAFSA has been completed)
  • Provide a copy of their unofficial high school transcript

More information, including the program application and the TRIO intake form, is available at seminolestate.edu/trio. Completed documents should be submitted via email to Marcus Williams, student retention and completion specialist, at williamsm@seminolestate.edu.
