Opportunities at CAC for Maricopa Students

There is still time for Maricopa students to get registered for
Central Arizona College’s First Step summer program and Early College
program for fall! The First Step program provides an opportunity for
Pinal County high school students who have completed their sophomore,
junior, or senior years, to take up to 5 college credit hours, during
CAC’s summer sessions for free tuition and fees! The only cost a
student would incur would be for books and transportation. For more
details on the program, summer course offerings, and the steps to
enroll in the program, please visit us atwww.centralaz.edu/firststep.
The Early College program provides an opportunity for Pinal County
high school students who are in their junior or senior years, to take
up to 5 college credit hours, during CAC’s fall and spring sessions
for free tuition and fees! The only cost a student would incur would
be for books and transportation. For more details on the program, fall
course offerings, and the steps to enroll in the program, please visit
us at www.centralaz.edu/earlycollege.

CAC is also offering recent high school graduates, beginning with the
class of 2014, and GED recipients an opportunity to experience life as
a college student this summer. Summer Bridge will take place Aug.
14-18 at the CAC Signal Peak Campus. Summer Bridge is a free five-day
extended orientation to college. During Summer Bridge, students learn
valuable skills in time-management, health and wellness, financial
management and money matters, decision making, and many other topics
crucial to success in college. Students live on-campus in CAC’s
residential halls, and are provided meals and all learning materials
throughout the program. The TRIO Summer Bridge program is the only
all-inclusive residential college orientation program held in Arizona.
Among the benefits for students who attend Summer Bridge is the Peer
Mentor program. Students are assigned a peer mentor and are encouraged
to meet with their mentor as often as necessary throughout the fall
semester while they adjust to college life. Students interested in
Summer Bridge should log on to www.centralaz.edu/summerbridge to
download a fillable application. Certain eligibility requirements are
based on federal guidelines.
