Summer Program Overview
The Student Support Services (SSS) Summer Program is a six-week session designed to prepare students accepted to the University of Connecticut for the rigors of academic life. The program is intensive and requires great effort and commitment on the part of the student. Students enroll in two University courses during the summer for which they may earn up to seven credits toward their UConn degree. Students must successfully complete the entire summer program in order to continue as freshmen in the fall.
The SSS Summer Program is offered at the Storrs campus and four of the regional campuses. The Storrs program is residential and requires students to live on campus during the six weeks. The Regional programs are non-residential; students attend daily and are required to provide their own transportation to and from the campus.
For additional details about the SSS Summer Program, please contact the SSS office at the campus to which you were accepted: Storrs, Avery Point, Greater Hartford, Stamford, and Waterbury.

The SSS Summer Program gave us an advantage over other freshmen because we started the fall semester with a family of friends and had already experienced the college environment. — Brandon, SSS Summer 2011
