The Summer Collegiate Experience (SCE) is a high-impact, quality-learning, first-year experience for students entering the university. Students typically enter SCE through PEOPLE, First Wave, and CAE; however, any interested student may apply to participate. As an SCE student, you will take two classes for degree credit, register for fall courses, and learn about UW-Madison resources and campus culture during a six-week residential summer program.
The curriculum is designed to advance your skills in writing, critical thinking, and cultural awareness. You will have the opportunity to meet a diverse group of other first-year students and faculty/staff, while getting adjusted to the University’s academic and social environment. In the sections below, you can find out more about SCE academics, programming, and housing during the six-weeks.
If you are interested in participating in SCE 2021 as an incoming freshman student to UW Madison, please fill out the SCE Application. Decisions on SCE applicants will be made after May 1st.
