Center for Academic Success and Achievement
CASA Academy is a five-week residential alternative admissions program coordinated by the Center for Academic Success and Achievement (CASA) at Morgan State University. It is designed to ease the transition from high school to college for students whose academic profile and performance suggest the need for early intervention to improve their potential for success in college. Transitioning high school students are referred to participate in CASA Academy by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Students must apply to Morgan State University in order to be referred to CASA Academy.
We accept a maximum of 300 students for each summer cohort. Students are enrolled in non-credit-bearing courses during CASA Academy. These courses are English, Math, Analytical and Critical Reading, and an Orientation course. These courses are taught by Morgan State University faculty and their freshman academic advisor. Participants who successfully complete CASA Academy by earning a minimum grade of "C" or 70% in all of their CASA Academy courses are eligible to gain admission to the University for the subsequent fall semester. Once the student has successfully completed CASA Academy 2023, they must participate in ACCESS Orientation for freshman students from Sunday, July 30th-August 2nd.
In addition to CASA Academy courses, students also engage in mandatory daily tutoring as well as enriching activities outside of the classroom on a weekly basis. The program allows participants to meet and interact with CASA staff, professors, peers, mentors, tutors, former CASA Academy participants, and alumni and explore the campus before the start of the fall semester. During the last week of the program, students who successfully complete CASA Academy are registered for their fall classes.
