  • JumpStart

    JumpStart is a unique program offered during the Summer B Term at the Eduardo J. Padrón Campus of Miami Dade College. JumpStart is designed to help incoming college freshman transition to college by providing a strong academic foundation, individualized advisement, and a supportive learning environment.   Selected high school seniors are accepted into the program based on their essay and completion of program eligibility requirements.

    Students take two classes, Student Life Skills and Fundamentals of Speech Communication. The Eduardo J. Padrón Campus offers free tuition for the two classes and pays for the course books. The benefit of the JumpStart program is that students can experience the Campus while it is less crowded than during the regular academic year. Participants have the opportunity to meet with faculty and staff, and they also learn where departments and services are located. The students make friendships which can serve as a support in their upcoming years as a college student.
