DASH Program

The Bellin College Developing Academic Skills and Habits (DASH) Program provides academic support to students who do not meet the admissions requirements for our direct admit option*. The goal of the program is to help students achieve the standards needed to enroll in the Sophomore Transfer Option (STO) their second year.
