CASA Academy 2020

In efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Governor of Maryland has mandated that access to all state buildings (including Morgan State University) be restricted. As such, in compliance with the governor's mandate, CASA Academy payments can no longer be made in person. However, participants can click here for guidelines to make a payment with a credit/debit card via the phone.

Please contact casa@morgan.edu if you have any questions.

Important Program Update

Due to the unfortunate health pandemic, The Center for Academic Success and Achievement (CASA) has designed both an online summer (CASA Academy Summer Enhancement Program) and an on-campus fall 2020 alternative program (CASA Academy First-Year Experience Program) to replace our traditional CASA Academy Summer Bridge Program this year. Successful completion of both programs will guarantee admission to the university.

Overview 

Confirmed CASA Academy students will participate in our online CASA Academy Summer Enhancement Program (Session 1: June 29th - August 7th or Session 2: July 20th - August 21st). This program provides the opportunity for students to virtually interact with CASA staff, peers, mentors, tutors, former CASA Academy participants and alumni, and explore the campus (virtual campus tour) before the start of the fall 2020 semester. Participants will engage in interactive online activities, meet their assigned academic advisor, and register for their fall classes during the CASA Academy Summer Enhancement Program.

Students who have completed the online CASA Academy Summer Enhancement Program will be a part of the CASA Academy First-Year Experience program. This program will take place on campus during the entire fall semester (September 9th - December 15th). Participants will be registered for our initial CASA Academy program courses (English 101, Analytical & Critical Reading, Math 106 and Orientation) along with their major and/or general education courses to reflect a full-time student schedule (at least 12 credits). Students will be assigned mandatory tutoring and must pass the program's courses with a grade of "C" or better to continue with spring enrollment.

Lastly, the registration fee to reserve a space in our program has been reduced from $670 to $75, payable by either credit card or money order. Also, the registration fee for session 2 of the Summer Enhancement Program is due August 3rd. Those participants who have already submitted a payment of $670 and reserved their space will have the remaining difference of $595 applied to the student's account for the fall semester. As a participant in the CASA Academy First-Year Experience program during the fall 2020 semester, you are required to pay Morgan State University's tuition and fees for the fall 2020 - spring 2021 academic year. A maximum of 300 students will be permitted to participate in our program. 


Morgan State University reserves the right to provide some or all instruction and related academic activities through alternative methods of delivery (other than face to face), including remote/online delivery. It also reserves the right to change the method of delivery before or during any academic term in the event of a health or safety emergency or other circumstance when it determines that such change is necessary or in the best interests of the campus community. Tuition and fees will not be reduced or refunded if the University changes the delivery method during any period or all of an academic session.
