Are you interested in pursuing a Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM) degree, but think you're not ready or don't know where to start?

Stem Core Student

STEM Core is a one-year STEM-preparatory program with an emphasis in math, designed to help students finish pre-requisite courses in order to major in the sciences.  As a STEM Core student, you will become a part of a learning community that will provide STEM counseling, career advising, tutoring, and one-on-one support to get you ready to pursue a STEM degree.

When you become a STEM Core student, you take required math and science courses during your first year.  After successful completion, you will be ready to start taking higher-level science and math courses.  Hispanic, low-income, and/or first-generation college students are particularly encouraged to apply.

Upon completion of program requirements, students may be eligible for paid summer internships with a STEM Core Employer, sponsor, or other regional employers. If accepted, participants will be required to attend a mandatory summer orientation on Monday, August 12.
