JumpStart at Gallaudet University is about challenge, discovery and new friends! It is a five-week summer program for first year and transfer students to help them get off to a good foundational start before the fall semester begins. Student Success oversees the JumpStart program.
JumpStart continues to provide exemplary service with the two tracks: Academic Success and American Sign Language. Its courses are designed to cultivate inquiry and critical thinking, enhance communication, broaden knowledge of human experiences and foster an appreciation and understanding of a diverse community. Student Success is in collaboration with Student Affairs and Academic Support units to make this JumpStart a success.
