Your first-year bridge from high school to college
Assumption’s semester-long first-year program, COMPASS (Common Pursuit of Academic and Social Success), gives you the tools and instruction to transition successfully into Assumption. You’ll learn in a close-knit, supportive community that allows you to ease into college-level coursework, quickly make new friends, and start your college career on the right foot.
A one-of-a-kind opportunity for sophomores
