This 4-day extended orientation program has been developed for first-time college students. Participants attend workshops to learn better study habits and campus resources. An extended orientation is usually held prior to the Summer Bridge Program.
During the 4-week summer bridge program, students take two non-credit courses to improve their English (reading and writing) and Math skills.
In-depth assessments of participants' English and Math knowledge will be conducted to help identify and address areas for improvement. The summer bridge is usually held from mid-July to mid-August.

Participants are assigned to a learning community with links to their courses based on academic interest and readiness for both fall and spring semesters. At least one community service project is integrated into the course curricula to provide real-world applications to classroom concepts and theories. Students who participate in the learning communities work with their counselors to develop educational plans.
