“Education is our passport to the future for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.”
— Malcolm X
Passport is an innovative, residential program designed to acclimate first-year students to the challenging academic life of the College of the Holy Cross. Each year Admissions and Academic Services invite selected in-coming students to participate in Passport. Students who accept our invitation to join Passport are expected to complete all three components of the program.
The program has three components:
- Summer Passport - held for three weeks in August before classes begin
- Fall Passport - meet regularly with the Passport Director and participate in academic workshops and the Mentor Program for ALANA, International and Passport students.
- January Retreat - Two days before the start of the spring semester, students get away to reflect on the fall term and prepare for the challenges of the spring term.
