Program Description 

Students are required to attend two, 2-hour math classes each week with additional tutoring labs available. Students who do not attend the class regularly and do not meet the attendance requirements will be dismissed from the program. Students will receive LIVE online instruction during the week with additional time for tutoring during the labs to work through their questions and concepts.

Students may not complete Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 in SUMO at the same time.

Midterm progress reports and final reports cards with letter grades will be issued in accordance with the MSU GATE grading scale. Grade reports will be sent directly to parents. Parents may request an official transcript from MSU GATE to be sent directly to their child’s home school.

GATE MSU Academic Programs are conducted as an opportunity for students to gain high school level credit. GATE mathematics classes are designed to align with Michigan HSCE requirements as well as Common Core. Parents are responsible to communicate with their child’s school before applying to any academic program to address the question of issuing credit and placement of their student in their class curriculum and/or schedule.  GATE does not guarantee any credit acceptance with any school or district. 

The GATE Summer Mathematics students are not able to opt into a MSU CHAMP program using any credit obtained from any GATE Summer Mathematics class. GATE Summer Mathematics class cannot be used as a substitute for any class in the MSU CHAMP program.

Students that wish to apply to CHAMP must complete a new application for CHAMP and complete and meet all of the requirements for the CHAMP application process.

SuMO acceptances are based on rolling admissions and are completed on a first come, first served basis. When a section is full the program will close and no more applications will be reviewed. Note: A SUMO section may fill prior to the application deadline date.

All sections must meet a minimum amount of registered students or the class will be canceled and all fees and payments will be refunded.
