EARLY START Summer Session

Early Start is a six-week mandatory session beginning June 23 – August 1, 2014.

The summer session provides students with quality academic support, and the opportunity to develop skills and strategies necessary for academic success at East Stroudsburg University.

Early Start targets incoming first-year ESU students by intentional academic intervention that includes academic advising, social and personal integration, career exploration, tutoring, and special program activities.

The curriculum is designed to fully engage students in gaining learning competencies through curricular and co-curricular experiences ultimately producing active and lifelong learners.

Early Start will assist in enhancing students’ academic potential for persistence and graduation from ESU.

All students will receive the following:

  • Supplemental Instruction for classes
  • Tutoring as needed (individual and group)
  • Peer Mentors
  • Special activities
