Prospective Students

The M-STEM Academies spans the first two undergraduate years starting with a pre-freshman year summer program.  Some of the benefits of the program include:

  • A head-start on preparing for the UM academic experience
  • A supportive community of like-minded scholars
  • Exposure to the vast numbers of professional opportunities in science, engineering, and mathematics
  • Academic and professional skill development
  • Hands-on undergraduate research opportunities
  • Academic coaching in addition to advising
  • Access to scholarship and internship information

Our experience, supported by national data, indicates that participation in a summer transition program, followed by comprehensive robust support throughout the academic year, increases academic excellence. The M-STEM Academy is designed to simultaneously build upon students’ strengths while customizing services so that all M-STEM students will be able to fully experience and benefit from the scope, scholarship, and scale of the University.
