California State University, Fullerton (CSUF) sponsors an exciting program called the “Mathematics Intensive Summer Session” (MISS). The purpose of this program is to assist college bound young women to enhance their mathematics skills.
For the past twenty-six years, CSUF has offered this program to female high school students, including many who will be the first in their family to attend college. The immediate goal of the program is to increase students’ abilities to learn and use mathematical concepts thereby supporting their achievement in high school college preparatory coursework. The long-term goal of the program is to increase the population of female students who choose careers in natural sciences, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

MISS is a four-week commuter program which will begin on Tuesday, July 5, 2016 and end on Friday, July 29, 2016. Students will attend six hours of mathematics class daily, Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Meals, books, materials and supplies are provided at no cost to the student. Every first-time MISS student that completes the program will receive a free graphing calculator.


To be eligible to participate in the MISS program, students must:
1.Have completed one of the classes below with a “C” or better by June 2016.
