Summer Enrichment Program

The Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) is an eight-week pre-college program for incoming WSU students who will be participating in the LAS Learning Community. CLLAS created SEP in 2004 to facilitate a successful transition from high school to college and help students sharpen their academic skills. SEP focuses on preparation in English, math, communications, and Latino/a cultural studies and leads to higher levels of retention and academic success. This summer we are collaborating with the Summer of Success program to offer a series of workshops tailored to incoming first-year students. 

The 2023 SEP is scheduled for Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from June 27 to August 15. Course days are Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Workshop days are Tuesdays from 9:00 a.m. to 3 p.m. Attendance to all course and workshop days are mandatory.
