EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH PROGRAMS AND SERVICES
Applicants for the program are primarily, but not limited to, first-time freshmen and lower-division transfer students. All applicants must be residents of California and must not exceed maximum income eligibility criteria.
MEP recruits historically underrepresented minorities into SFSU's engineering program. Throughout their studies, the women and men in the program receive academic support and personal counseling to keep them on track toward their degrees.
MEP helps participating students graduate and enter the job market with the skills and confidence they need to succeed as engineers. Often alumni professionals augment the program by serving as primary role models for minority high school students who are beginning to plan their futures.
Black, Hispanic, and Native American students are encouraged to apply to the MEP. All applicants must satisfy the general requirements for admission to SFSU.
Success in engineering requires a background in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus/calculus, chemistry, and physics. Students who have not taken all these courses before enrolling at SFSU may take them at SFSU.
Step to College increases the high school graduation rates of disadvantaged minority students, helps them make a successful transition to higher education, and increases the college/university retention rates.
Among the early outreach services provided by SAA are the Study Skills Program for 8th grade students, the Mathematics Education Project for 9th through 12th grade students, SAT preparation and review workshops, and College Application Assistance Workshops for students and their families. College Opportunity Days are offered to 8th through 12th grade students. A Summer Enrichment Program which focuses on development and enhancement of college preparatory mathematics skill requirements is conducted on the San Francisco State University campus..
Among other responsibilities, the office participates in educational equity projects, facilitates the EOP application process, and coordinates the operation of the overall university outreach program.
