The students applying to state supported institutions of higher learning in Mississippi who fail to meet the four admission criteria participate in a nine-week summer program to increase their chances of being admitted. Qualified students take course work in reading, composition and mathematics. This program includes classroom instruction, as well as computer-assisted tutorials. These courses will not count toward graduation. However, with successful completion of the Summer Developmental Program, the student will be able to enroll in freshman courses whenever the student matriculates at the university. In addition, the students receive counseling and support needed to participate successfully in the academic and social community of the University.
