The pre-freshman summer program is required for all college students admitted into Opportunity Programs at Manhattan College.
The summer program is designed to orient pre-freshmen students to life on campus, enrich their academic skills and acquaint the student with the services available at the College.
Students are required to take one writing course, one mathematics course, and a third course that is tailored to their chosen major. The summer program typically runs from the first week of July to the second week of August over four or five days for six weeks.
During the summer program, students are eligible to receive three credits for their writing course, English 106, English 110, or Religion 110, which are courses that are traditionally taken during a student’s first year as a college student. This opportunity gives students the flexibility of reducing their course load in their first year and serves as a contingency for future semesters. Students are also given the opportunity to advance from precalculus to Calculus I if they are successful in the summer program course.
