PREP Program (Providing Resources for Educational Progress): PREP is a transition program for students receiving accommodations through the SMC SDS Office and who may benefit from support with transitioning to college.   The two-day program is funded through a gift from a generous donor. 

As long as covid protocols allow, this year's PREP program begins when students move into the residence halls the morning of Tuesday 8/24, prior to general first-year move-in.  After a family lunch provided by SMC, the students will say goodbye to their families and start 2 days of attending presentations and information sessions, taking a classroom tour, eat on campus, and generally get acclimated to the campus and college life. Students attend an offsite activity for dinner and dessert on one of the days, and a closing picnic on another.   PREP is a great way to get to know the campus community, the SDS staff, SMC Faculty and advisors, and students with whom you will be spending the next several years!

There is no cost to participate in this program.  Space is limited.  If you are an incoming first-year or transfer student, please contact us at to get more information and to sign-up.
