HEOP Support Services
Pre-Freshman Summer Program
All incoming HEOP pre-freshmen take part in an intensive five-week summer program, which orients students to college life at Fisher and helps prepare them for future academic work. The purpose of this program is to assist students in making the academic, social and personal adjustments, which are essential for educational success. The pre-freshman program offers a variety of developmental courses and workshops. Courses consist of study skills, mathematics, writing and psychology. Workshop topics include college life, financial aid, choosing a major, personal concerns, career planning and money management.
We are aware that many students entering college experience problems in this new environment. As a result, to help insure success, the Academic Opportunity Program Office maintains a full-time counseling/advisement staff. This means that all HEOP students may receive individual and group counseling on a variety of topics vital to college success, including academic, personal, social, and career development.
Tutorial services are provided to all students enrolled in HEOP. Both group and individual study sessions are available. These services are offered to all HEOP students free of charge. Tutorial services are also available to all students through the College's Office of Academic Affairs and Math/Writing Center without cost.
