Earn Free College Credits

Summer STEM Program Opportunities to Earn Free College Credits Now Accepting Applications

South Mountain Community College (SMCC) offers two summer program opportunities for students pursuing STEM degrees to earn college credits for free.  The SMCC Bioscience Summer Camp and the Minority Male Summer Institute are now accepting applications.

In the Bioscience Summer Camp students learn about scientific applications, laboratory techniques, and moral issues associated with Biotechnology and earn four college credits. Expand your career and college options, while getting paid to earn four college credits that meet general education Natural Science requirements at universities and colleges across the country.

Biotechnology is one of the 21st century’s hottest careers, and experience in this field looks good on a resume or college application. As part of the camp, students will take field trips and get behind-the-scenes looks at Tgen and ASU’s Biodesign Institutes.

The Minority Male Summer Institute (MMI) is a program that was created to promote study and careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics to graduating minority male high school seniors.

Male students of color continue to be under-represented in the career fields of science and technology. The MMI was designed to make it easier for these students to get started in college and begin a potentially rich and rewarding career path while earning five college credits in just five weeks.

Both programs run May 26 to June 25, 2015 at the SMCC main campus located at 7050 S. 24th Street, Phoenix.  For detailed information and application to these programs visit, or contact Yvette Espinosa at 602.243.8090.
