The TC Energy Summer Scholars Academy offers an intensive 9-week program that is designed for students who have an outstanding high school academic record and are interested in majors in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (NSM) or the Cullen College of Engineering. Summer scholars can earn credit for Calculus 1 (MATH 2413), receive a preview of Fundamentals of Chemistry, and College Success (CORE 1100) content. Upon successful completion of the program, students will be evaluated for admittance into their first-choice major in NSM or Engineering if they didn’t meet automatic admission requirements.
The program is supported through a gift from the TC Energy Foundation.
