Please complete the “June-July 2014” contract. There is a $100.00 room reservation fee required immediately that will be applied to your overall cost for housing. Students participating in the Success Academy will be housed in Piedmont North in a Shared Bedroom for $1,100.00. Please indicate your participation in the Academy on the contract. Students who live in Housing will also be required to purchase a meal plan for $831.00, which provides 3 meals per day/all you can eat for seven weeks.

Do I have to live on campus?

While living on campus is not required, it is strongly recommended. Students who live on campus have a higher retention rate than those who reside off campus, make friends faster, learn about themselves and how to live with others, and become engaged with the university much faster.

How do I accept the invitation?

After receiving the invitation from the Office of Admissions, students will need to complete the Success Academy Participation Form. The completed form will not only provide the Office of Undergraduate Studies with information on how best to help Success Academy students succeed in their transition to college, but will also serve as an indication that you intend on enrolling this summer.
