Summer Scholar Program

About the Program

The Summer Scholar Program is a cohort-based pathway for graduating seniors who plan to attend TCC as a freshman during the Fall term. Participating students will jumpstart their college career by taking courses during the June Express session of Summer term. These students will learn and grow together as they are placed in the same courses for that initial start of the program while taking part in engaging enrichment sessions focused on career building, goal setting, and many more empowering initiatives.

As the cohort progresses to the Fall term, they are provided additional opportunities that will lead to college success such as exposure to other TCC programs, community service, mentorship opportunities, and more. This includes being paired with a mentor to provide positive accountability and support. Students accepted into the program will receive a scholarship for six credit hours of tuition and fees, including a textbook stipend, for the program courses.
