JumpStart: Academic Success


What is JumpStart: Academic Success?

JumpStart: Academic Success is for first year freshmen and transfer students admitted to Gallaudet University who would benefit form intensive instruction in college writing, reading, mathematics, and study skills necessary to prepare for college level work. Academic Success students also receive individualized academic advice and counseling, including an assessment their academic strengths and weaknesses, meet with faculty and staff, and learn about academic resources available to them at Gallaudet.

The overall message is that academic success can happen in many ways at Gallaudet University. Students can take ownership of their academic support. In time, it is expected that the students will be able to succeed in the intellectual, cultural, and social climate of the university.

Please do check out below on what our previous JumpStart: Academic Success students have to say about their JumpStart experience!

Experiences from our previous Academic Success students:

"JumpStart truly prepared me for the academic expectations in my first college semester. Also, I get the chance to make new friends before everyone else does! If it were not for JumpStart, I would not be as successful as I am today!" - Hillary Frankowiak

"I considered JumpStart: Academic Success a marvelous opportunity for first-year students in learning English and Math strategies. It prepares me well for college-level courses in my first semester. With the JumpStart program, I am able to succeed in intellectual, cultural, and social aspects here at Gallaudet!" - Min Wook Cho

"Before I went into JumpStart, I thought it was pointless. Once I got there, I gained an amazing experience! Today, I am different because of JumpStart. I am now more confident as a student and a leader at Gallaudet University." -Dominique Flagg

"Everyone should at least experience JumpStart to get a taste of Gallaudet and Washington D.C. before the fall semester begins. It can be overwhelming with academics, campus life, and sports if one does not go through JumpStart." - Leslye Kang
