Jump Start

Miles College Jump Start Program is a six-week summer program that allows students to get a “Jump Start” on their college journey at a tuition discounted rate of $2500.  This is about half the cost of our normal summer tuition rates. Students who qualify for full Pell Grant may attend at no out of pocket cost. Full Pell Grant pays for $2300 and our president is waiving the $200 out of pocket cost. That means that if a student qualifies for full Pell Grant, the out of pocket cost to attend is Zero. Jumpstart begins in June. The college will provide a laptop for every Jumpstart student. The student keeps the laptop if, at the end of the six-week program, the student decides to enroll at Miles College for the fall semester. If not, the student just returns the laptop to the college at the end of the program.  With courses offered in English, Mathematics, Speech, Reading, Psychology, Computer Information Systems, First Year Academy, World Civilization and Speech, not only does Miles College Jump Start program prepare you academically but it provides a broad range of evening and weekend activities. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity. Join Jump Start today!
