The University of Success is a pre-college program at The University of Scranton. Over the years you have been the primary resource for recruiting new students, and I am asking you again this year to identify students that you think would benefit most from this program. Enclosed are several applications for you to distribute to current eighth grade students who intend to enroll in a public high school and that meet at least three of the following qualifications:
· The student’s family is economically disadvantaged.
· The student’s cultural background is typically underrepresented in higher education.
· The student possesses at average or higher academic ability.
· The student exhibits strong academic motivation with a strong desire to attend college.
· The student is a potential first generation college student in his/her family.
· The student is enrolled in a public school
Ask the students to complete the applications and return them to you. Accepted students will be invited to begin their tenure with the program by participating in a two week residential Summer Academy which will be held Sunday, July 6, to Friday, July 18, 2014, on the campus of the University of Scranton.
