Mount Access Program
The Mount Access Program (MAP) provides higher educational opportunities to students who might not otherwise continue their education. MAP is a program designed for students who show potential and motivation to succeed in college but have SAT/ACT scores and/or high school records below normal admission requirements.

MAP students pursue all academic majors offered by the College. They have continued into graduate school and have entered professions such as accounting, education, law, and medicine.

The MAP Program is based on the beliefs that education is a pathway to success and if given the opportunity, any student can reach his or her full potential and succeed.

How MAP Works 
Students admitted to the Mount Access Program are chosen not only for what they may expect to gain from their time here but also for what they can contribute to our community.

MAP Students  

  • All students accepted into MAP must attend a two-week summer program, which aims to strengthen the students' academic skills and provide them with a smooth transition from high school to college.
  • Students in MAP take three core academic courses, an English foundations course, and a skills course during their first semester for a total of 12 credits.
  • Successful students will be given the opportunity to take one three-credit course, tuition free, over the course of the next three years.
  • First-year students are placed in their own section of FYE 101, taught by their faculty advisor.
  • First-year students receive individual academic monitoring and are expected to meet with their advisor regularly for academic counseling and support.
