summer scholars heading

Get Ahead – The choices you make today can help you tomorrow.

Summer Scholars FAQ

Who should attend the Laker Summer Scholars Program?

Laker Summer Scholars gives talented and motivated university bound 8th – 12th grade students in the 2020 school year the opportunity to get a “jump start” by earning university credit before attending on a full-time basis.

What is the Laker Summer Scholars Program?

With parent permission, qualified students moving to 8th through 12th grade in the 2020 school year are able to enroll in LSSU courses during the Summer Semester 2020.  Lake Superior State University is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.  Credit earned under this program will be applicable toward a degree at Lake Superior State University and may be transferable to other accredited colleges and universities consistent with that institution’s transfer and equivalency policies.

Program Requirements

Requirements for admission to Laker Summer Scholars are designed to ensure the success of students in the program. For immediate acceptance, students must meet the following:

  1. Verification of appropriate scores on SAT, PSAT, NWEA MAP
  2. Have the permission of a parent or legal guardian.
  3. For courses that have specific placement tests or that require specific placement scores (e.g. English or mathematics), students must also meet the same requirements as those required of on-campus students.

Students who do not meet these criteria, but who are judged by their school counselor, principal, assistant principal or superintendent to be exceptionally academically motivated, and to have a strong potential for success in university level work, may be considered for admission into the Summer Scholars Program on an individual basis.  The final acceptance decision will be made by the University.

Information for Students

  1. Course Rigor – The course syllabus and content are approved by the academic department at Lake Superior State University and will be taught at the university level.
  2. Study Time – As a general rule, you should expect to study two hours per week for each hour spent in the classroom. For example, a three credit course taken in the summer over six weeks would meet, in person or virtually, for approximately six hours a week. Thus, you would plan on at least twelve hours per week for study and homework in addition to your class time.
  3. Grades – You will be graded based on Lake Superior State University standards.
  4. Academic Record – The credit and grades you earn will become a part of your permanent academic record (transcript) at Lake Superior State University.
  5. Policies/Procedures – You will be expected to follow Lake Superior State University policies and procedures. To view the Lake Superior State University Undergraduate Catalog visit http://www.lssu.edu/catalog/.
  6. Attendance – Your attendance and participation is expected.
  7. Fees – Fees are based on established rates and programs.

Student Skills and Equipment Checklist

To be a successful online university student, the following are strongly recommended.

Equipment

Access to a PC or Mac computer is required. Computers that do not allow downloads or have much memory, such as Chromebooks, can present barriers to online assessment integrity. Cell phones and tablets may pose barriers for online learning platforms and are not recommended for use as the only learning tool available to students.

Broadband internet with sufficient bandwidth to stream video is important. At https://www.speedtest.net/ you can test your speed for downloading and uploading. The minimum download speeds suggested for online courses is 1.5 Mbps.

The course textbook(s) should be purchased or rented. The LSSU Bookstore textbook website is https://lssu.bncollege.com/shop/lssu/page/find-textbooks. This is where you can look up the required and recommended texts for courses as well as purchase or rent the materials.

Skills

Success in college course work often requires more than just proficiency in the academic subject matter. Thus, we encourage students and parents to consider whether the student has a demonstrated ability to:

  1. Send appropriately professional emails to faculty and staff.
  2. Communicate with faculty about upcoming absences.
  3. Ask questions and seek out help when needed.
  4. Upload files to Moodle.
  5. Navigate a website to find information.
  6. Utilize effective study techniques.
  7. Use organizational tools to manage time and keep track of assignments.
  8. Understand what qualifies as an academic integrity violation (e.g. cheating, plagiarism).
  9. Read and understand a college syllabus.
  10. Understand and summarize a passage.
  11. Find and identify appropriate academic sources.
  12. Understand and follow LSSU’s policies and procedures.
  13. Accept responsibility for actions.
  14. Seek out and take advantage of support resources.
  15.  Participate in group projects.

Summer 2020 Course Information

Math Placement Information:

LSSU uses ALEKS PPL, which stands for Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces Placement, Preparation, and Learning, and is a web-based system that uses artificial intelligence and adaptive testing. This math placement program not only serves as a placement tool, it is a great way to improve both your course placement and skills.  ALEKS registration takes place at home and costs just $20. For information on how to sign up, contact the Academic Support Services Coordinator, Amanda Methot, at .  Registration opens access to five tests and their corresponding learning modules. Each test can be used as either a practice test (taken at home) or a proctored test (taken with a proctoring tool at home or at a testing center). We recommend using the first 2-3 tests as practice. After each test attempt, ALEKS will generate a series of learning modules for you to work through. These modules are unique to you, based on the skills that you need to improve in order to move to the next level. All modules must be completed before the next test will unlock. Students have been able to improve their course placement by taking these modules before testing.

All summer school courses receive the same level of support from Library and Academic Services as traditional semesters.  This includes:

  • Writing and Math Lab
  • Tutoring support
  • Access to library resources and staff
  • Accessibility Services
  • Career Services

Each of the following is a university course open to all LSSU students who meet the course requirements/prerequisites and each course is taught at a university level. Some involve more mature content, which is noted in the course information.
