Application Requirements for the Urban Education Program
The Urban Education Summer Bridge Program is designed to provide assistance to prospective incoming first-year undergraduate students. The program works collaboratively with students to engage in an ongoing transition process from high school to college. The process focuses on fostering academic excellence, leadership, meaningful academic and social connections, and personal development to create a foundation for persistence towards a timely graduation. Through participation in Summer Bridge, students utilize campus resources and develop skills necessary to thrive academically in order to reach their personal goals of graduation.
Summer Bridge will consist of a five-week program, open to a select cohort of prospective first-year program students who have the potential to take up to two college courses for credit (3-6 college credits). The three major components of the Summer Bridge Program include academics, campus resources and social development. The Summer Bridge Program provides an opportunity for prospective students to transition into college with an early support system with their cohort, student leaders, alumni, and Program staff. Participants become familiar with campus, meet various campus constituents and support services, and attend collegiate courses with coursework that has a strong emphasis on critical thinking and analytical skills.
Our priority admission deadline is February, 1, 2020 and we only have 100 seats available.
