During Summer Institute, participants will build skills and confidence by completing coursework in:
Individual and group tutoring is available in all subjects. Tutoring hours are completed after required classes and in the late afternoon/evening in our residence hall and computer lab. All program participants are required to engage in tutoring as it is an essential component of academic success. Summer tutoring will familiarize participants with similar services offered during the academic year in the EOP office and the Claude J. Clark Learning Center.
All Summer Institute participants will be assigned to an EOP counselor who will continue to serve as a resource during the academic year. EOP counselors assist students with a variety of issues and concerns, and will meet with all Institute participants at least once during the summer.
Opportunities to participate in a variety of social and recreational activities are provided throughout the summer. These activities are designed to:
|Students enjoying a ferry ride to Burlington, Vermont|
|EOP men reach new heights on Whiteface Mountain|
All new freshmen are required to complete Summer Institute and pass all summer coursework before beginning classes in the fall. Students who do not complete Summer Institute will be withdrawn from the college and removed from fall courses.
No. Participants must be present on scheduled check-in and check-out days to insure that required placement exams and post-tests are complete. Students who arrive after the scheduled check-in date will be sent home.

For many of our participants, Plattsburgh is quite far from home. Students from the city can expect to be approximately 5-7 hours from home. Students from the Albany area are 2-4 hours from home. Local students might be 10 minutes to an hour from home. Many students find that they don't have time to be homesick, but those who are receive a lot of care and support throughout the summer.
