Summer College Preview Program (SCPP)
What is university like?
The SCPP is an academically intensive program that introduces high school students to the different facets of campus life. Students attend college-level preparation classes in math and writing, create a project in one of our academic majors as part of a team. Many SCPP students go on to become CMU-Q students.
