The Compass Program helps you soar

First-year students who are conditionally admitted to Fort Lewis College are required to participate in our Compass Program. First-year students identified for the Compass program generally fall below the average GPA for admitted students (3.0-3.8).

While Compass students take part in our Summer Bridge program that starts four weeks before the fall term, your Compass experience will last your entire first year. You'll be able to explore campus, make friends early, and have mentors to guide you every step of the way.
