What is Jump Start Program?

The mission of the IU Kokomo Jump Start Program is to assist 21st Century, first generation scholars, and students of color to successfully transition from high school to Indiana University Kokomo. By participating in the Jump Start Program, students will make connections with other students, staff and faculty. Students will also become acquainted with the campus resources and learn how to effectively and efficiently utilize Financial Aid, Academic Advising, Career Center, Registrar, Bursar and other campus resources. Through this program, students will also learn how to succeed in their educational program.
