The Mission of the Summer Bridge Program

This eight-week summer intensive curriculum will enable prospective students to begin their university career early. They will discover what skills and behaviors students need to be successful in the university setting – and to begin developing those skills. Earning course credit for Academic Writing (Writing 01) or Pre-Calculus (Math 05) allows Summer Bridge students to enter their fall semester with a head start on earning graduation credits.

Additionally, the Summer Bridge Program offers:

  • Small class size (max of 20 in Math and 15 in Writing)
  • Close, supporting ties among students and instructors that last beyond summer
  • Personalized advising and counseling
  • Introduction to campus resources
  • Early registration for fall 2014 courses
  • Transition to university social and intellectual life
  • Development of mentoring relationships with current upperclassmen
