Emerging Scholars are Bennett College students who have been admitted with a high school cumulative grade point average of less than 2.5, at the time of their offer of admission to the college. Emerging Scholars must participate in the Emerging Scholars Program for their entire Freshwoman year (2 semesters). Additionally, Emerging Scholars Program participants are restricted to a maximum of 15 credit hours per semester while they are on Emerging Scholar status and provided with various academic support programming to promote their success.
Emerging Scholars Program participants are also required to meet once each month with the Curriculum Learning Center/Emerging Scholars Coordinator and attend success seminars, and tutoring as assigned. The monthly meeting is designed to check in with students, provide guided support throughout their semester and resolve any difficulties. The success seminars offered consist of several skill building concepts such as, test-taking strategies, goal setting, time management, college etiquette, stress management and additional topics as requested.
