YSP Early Arrival Program

The Young Scholars Program (YSP) promotes academic success, personal, and professional development through a series of collegiate programs designed to support undergraduate student engagement, retention, and graduation from The Ohio State University. Signature programs include the Early Arrival Program, Bridge Curricular Learning Community, holistic success coaching, peer mentoring, scholarship services, and post-baccalaureate preparation.

Early Arrival Program

Participation in Young Scholars collegiate services begins with a mandatory week-long pre-college summer experience. The objective of the program is to provide participants with the following:

  • Community building through peer mentoring, social events, and collaborative programming
  • Interactions with faculty and staff to expand university networks of support
  • Introductions to the university “hidden curriculum” and campus resources for student success
