Summer at Lehigh
Find Your Missing Piece

Virtual College Success Academy

You are here

The Virtual College Success Academy (VCSA) is a summer program for new international undergraduate students who will be starting at Lehigh University in the fall semester. The VCSA program enrolls students in a live online course called Lehigh Life and Language for International Speakers, with three credits toward graduation. In addition, the VCSA program allows these students to interact virtually with Lehigh faculty, staff, and students for interviews, activities, and campus events.

This course introduces international students to Lehigh University culture and support services, helps them brush-up on their academic communication and study skills, and helps them begin to develop friends and social groups in order to succeed living and studying on campus. In the course, you will meet online with the teacher and other students as a whole class at times, and at other times you will meet individually with the teacher and in small groups online. As a final group e-portfolio, students collaborate virtually on research about Lehigh University life and language.
