Wilkes Univer­sity and Mil­ton Her­shey School have part­nered to im­prove re­ten­tion and grad­u­a­tion rates among low-in­come, first­gen­er­a­tion col­lege stu­dents. Un­der a new agree­ment, qual­i­fied stu­dents from Mil­ton Her­shey School are guar­an­teed a spot in the Univer­sity’s Ed­u­ca­tional Gate­way to Ex­cel­lence pro­gram, Wilkesedge, which aids stu­dents in their tran­si­tion from high school to col­lege. It for­mal­izes the re­la­tion­ship be­tween the in­sti­tu­tions, stream­lin­ing the ad­mis­sion process for any in­ter­ested stu­dents, in­clud­ing those qual­i­fied for the Wilkes hon­ors pro­gram.
