Project Jump Start
Dear Future Blue Tiger!
In an effort to provide students with an opportunity to prepare for their fall 2017 enrollment at Lincoln University, we are continuing our Project Jump Start (PJS) program to help better prepare students for their academic career. You have been selected to participate in the PJS's Beta class this summer.
By participating, you will have an opportunity to take summer classes to help:
- Prepare you for the fall experience
- shorten your academic career in college by earning 9 credits
- start building friendships with the Class of 2021 Cohort
Students participating in this unique summer enrichment program will earn 9 academic credits toward graduation by enrolling in an English, Math, and Sociology course (all of which counts towards graduation).
Those completing the summer with a 4.0 will receive a scholarship to cover the renting of their textbooks for the fall semester ($500 maximum). Those who complete the program with a 3.0 or higher will receive a $250 scholarship towards the rental of textbooks for the fall semester. In addition, the students with the highest GPA's will participate in cultural trip to Albany, GA for the Lincoln University vs. Albany State University football game in Semester 2017.
Participating in this program will also give students an opportunity to:
- pick their room in the residence halls and remain in their assigned rooms during the academic year;
- receive priority advising for the summer and fall semesters;
- have a week off in-between classes and Welcome Week; and,
- receive priority financial aid packaging for the summer and 2017-2018 academic year.
