Sophomore Summer

Your first year at Carolina can prove to be challenging. If you are a rising second year student and have experienced academic challenges, Sophomore Summer may be a great opportunity to help you on your journey to Good Standing.

So, what is Sophomore Summer?
Sophomore Summer is a program for 20 rising second year students, like you, who are not in good standing upon completing their first academic year. Our goal is to provide support to identity and address challenges, as well as support to move forward, persist and thrive at Carolina. For Summer 2020, we will utilize Zoom and other virtual resources to provide individualized and group support.

  • 3 credits worth of tuition and fees (in-state or out-of-state) = FREE CLASS
  • Support towards regaining academic eligibility
  • Individualized and group support to identify and address challenges
  • Develop a sense of community with peers and professionals

Students who participate in Sophomore Summer are expected to engage in required co-curricular activities outside of class designed to further develop academic skills and foster community among the program participants.
