Wiley College Student Support Services Basic Skills Institute
The Basic Skills Institute is designed first, to acquaint pre-freshman and pre-sophomore students with the campus and campus life; second, to sharpen the student's academic skills in English, mathematics, test taking, and study skills. This will help students, during their freshman and sophomore years, to complete successfully the liberal arts general education requirements and ensure the requisite preparation for the major field of study.
While the focus of the Institute is on academics, Wiley College fosters the development of a balanced life that includes social, spiritual, cultural and recreational activities for the students who participate in the summer program.
For additional information, please contact Ms. Sylvia Frank, program director, at 903-927-3230.
