SWTJC STEM: STEM Boot Camp

The SWTJC STEM libguide's purpose is to encourage undergraduate students, in particular, minorities and women, to pursue research and careers in the sciences and engineering fields at SWTJC.

Information

The STEM Boot Camp is a free math intense program designed for first-year students who will pursue a STEM Career Pathway. The purpose of the STEM Boot Camp is to help entering STEM students succeed and prepare for the rigors of our STEM Career Pathways.

Students will have the opportunity to test into a higher math class at the end of the camp and to talk with an academic advisor to revise their Fall schedule. 

Why Apply?

An increase in the math placement level saves students time and money. Participating students have the opportunity to be calculus ready within the two-week summer program.

Students will also have the opportunity to receive a scholarship to apply towards their Fall 2017 semester at Southwest Texas Jr. College.

Living and Learning STEM Community

Students will interact with faculty and student mentors in and out of the classroom, learn how to study and learn, and do group and extracurricular activities.

Participating students will also reside in Southwest Texas Jr. College’s Garner Hall residential dormitory, where they will have the opportunity to receive guidance from the in-house STEM mentors.
