Now in its 20th year, the EMU Edge is a four-year academic support program designed to help students realize their higher education goals, beginning with the transition from high school to college, and continuing until graduation. Students who are admitted to the University on an academic plan by the Office of Admissions may apply to participate with the Edge Program.
Edge provides students with free academic workshops, training in study skills, academic monitoring, individualized instruction, and advising assistance. The majority of students that participate in Edge successfully move on to their sophomore year at Eastern Michigan University.
What are my program requirements?
All first-year Edge students must complete a minimum of one VSR and one SW each week as part of their 10 hours of structured study time. The rest of this time can be completed through attending Eagle Study Tables, drop-in tutoring, SI sessions, and Success Coach or PAC one-on-one sessions.
