The Eastern Michigan University Summer Incentive Program

The Summer Incentive Program (SIP) has been alive and well at Eastern Michigan University (EMU) since 1988, and to date, has served over 1,400 students. The mission of SIP is to provide high school graduates who do not meet the prerequisites for admission the opportunity to attend EMU on a conditional basis. SIP is housed within Academic Success Partnerships, a department committed to inspiring students to achieve personal, educational, and career goals.
SiP at EMU
  • SIP has been recognized by the Lee Noel and Randi Levitz Retention Excellence Awards Program for its intensive and structured academic and student work format.

  • Ninety-five percent (95%) of SIP students successfully complete the program and begin their freshman year at Eastern Michigan University ready for success.

  • SIP students have a higher first year retention rate compared to students who are admitted through the regular admissions process. This is important to note considering that the students admitted into the SIP program have significantly lower GPA's and ACT scores and were denied admission to the University on that basis.

The Summer Incentive Program is provided through Academic Success Partnerships, 301 Pierce Hall, 734.487.8413
