First Year: Summer Challenge

What is it?

Armstrong Summer Challenge is a summer program designed to provide students who are provisionally accepted for summer admission with the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to succeed at college-level work. Students who pass all summer courses with a “C” or better in each course can enroll regularly for the following fall semester.

  • Students who are interested in participating in Challenge should complete the regular Undergraduate Admission Application. Qualified applicants will be invited to join the program. Once selected for the program, students will complete a contract and submit the non-refundable $75 deposit to reserve their space. Space in the program is limited, and reservations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Students take three college-level academic courses and earn seven hours of academic credit during the summer. Courses taken during Challenge are not remedial and count toward graduation. The professors are hand-selected from among the best professors at Armstrong and have a proven track record of successful teaching and student mentoring.
  • All Armstrong Summer Challenge students are required to live on campus while attending the program. All Challenge students will reside in Windward Commons Residence Hall.
