  • PREP: Early move-in program for incoming freshman & 转学

    • PREP (Providing 资源 for Educational Progress) is a transition program for students receiving accommodations through the SMC 残疾人服务 office and who may benefit from extra support when starting school. 
    • The Fall 2024 program will be a 2-day program starting Tuesday 8/20 and allows students to move in early to get settled before the general student population moves in.  在2天内, 学生将参加演讲, 说明会, and fun social activities to help get acclimated to SMC.  Space is limited to 20 students and the cost to participate in the program will be determined by April 2024. Interested incoming students for Fall 2024 can contact sds@mylifemytakaful.com 了解更多信息.

      一位前预科学生的反馈:On my first day on campus I was scared, nervous, and unprepared to move away from home. I was quiet and didn’t talk to many of the students in the program. My parents thought it would be an excellent way to transition into college but I was very unsure of the process. As a student in the program, I tried to absorb everything I was learning. My first semester came and I felt completely prepared and supported. From the first conversation with the SDS PREP team, I found my people who would become my family and the biggest support system on campus. I owe a great deal of my success and growth to the SDS department."
