How does SEOP work?

SEOP is designed to give students a real taste of college life.  All students live on campus, attend classes, and explore campus life together.  Resident advisers and peer counselors are always available to advise and counsel SEOP students and to implement a variety of enrichment activities, both academic and recreational.
SEOP participants enjoy the camaraderie of a cohesive group of students and, at the same time, receive a number of academic advantages, including individualized academic counseling, small classes, and personal attention from faculty and staff.

Southern knows that the transition from high school to college is a lot more complicated than simply graduating from one and registering for the other.

What happens after SEOP?

Upon successful completion of the program, students will be admitted to SCSU for the upcoming fall semester and will receive four college credits for the study completed during the summer.

We hope that SEOP students will end their summer experience by building a strong foundation for academic achievement and with a new perspective on Southern's vast resources.  SEOP students will begin the fall semester with a close network of peers, the support of faculty and staff, refined learning skills, and a new fund of knowledge about college and themselves.
