Spring Workshops

Filling the Gap: "Summer Melt" strategies to support the high school to college transition

Participants will:

  • Recognize life challenges that may interfere with college matriculation.
  • Learn proven high school-to-college transition strategies.
  • Connect with postsecondary staff and learn about campus resources.
  • Increase the understanding of the College Bound Scholarship program including regional and statewide updates.


Nationwide up to 40 percent of students who intend to go to college never enroll.  This ‘drop-off’ is better known as summer melt.  Many ‘college-bound’ students have already completed the necessary steps—e.g. applying for financial aid and scholarships, and being admitted to a college, but never make it to their first day of class.  This Summer Melt workshop will introduce and define data and discuss potential summer melt strategies with K-12 and higher education partners.
