Abstract

This conference paper examines how to implement a summer first-year experience program. We address practical, hands-on steps on how to initiate and sustain a credit-bearing summer session program for entering freshman and transfer students at the institutional level. The step-by-step process is not limited only to first-year student programming; it may be beneficial for launching other institutional initiatives. Also discussed are the benefits of internal and external institutional collaborative efforts and strategies for creating a summer first-year experience program that aligns with institutional culture.
