Summit students complete a variety of academic activities during Academic Boot Camp.
Two Summit-specific foundation courses (INST 105 and INST 106)
INST 105 and INST 106 introduce Summit students to a college-level workload, with attention to critical reading, thinking, and writing. Students are expected to analyze, critique, and evaluate readings in both class discussion and writing.
Intensive Advising & Academic Support
Summit students meet at least THREE times per semester with Summit’s Academic Adviser.
Summit students complete at least TWO hours per week of Academic Support, which students can complete using any combination of nine different services.
Early Warning of Academic Risk
Summit students must earn a Fall GPA of at least 2.0.
Summit students must earn INST 105 and INST 106 grades of C- or better.
Our staff tracks each student’s progress using La Salle’s Early Alert System and midterm grades. Students at risk of not meeting these requirements will receive a warning letter just after midterm.
