ENDORSEMENTS PROGRAM

ABOUT ENDORSEMENTS

Fusion Endorsements are a supplemental program offered to demonstrate a student’s commitment to a field of study before entering college or the work force. It’s a way to tell college advisors and employers, "I’ve chosen my major and couldn’t wait to get started.” By focusing additional learning in specific areas of interest, students receive additional credibility on their college transcripts, which positions them above students who have only completed minimum requirements for graduation.

Beyond honors, these Endorsements are crafted to prepare students for college course materials before stepping foot on campus. Click below to see which endorsement is right for you!
