Eagle RISE Summer Academy logo

The Summer Academy is a six-week program consisting of two clustered classes (ENC 1101 and SLS 1510), a math immersion and student engagement seminars.

Our aim is to connect low-income, minority and first-generation students with faculty, staff and resources across TCC's campus to help them achieve a successful academic, social and personal transition to TCC. Students in the program will work collaboratively among a diverse group of learners and will develop skills necessary to thrive academically and reach their personal goals of certification, graduation, and/or transfer.

Summer 2023

Orientation is Wednesday June 21, in the Student Union ballroom from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Classes begin Tuesday, June 27.
