Summer Bridge Program

Summer Bridge Anniversary

Since 1975, the CSP Summer Bridge Program has successfully offered intensive academic preparation, highly individualized academic advising, and the personal attention of faculty in an intensive, yet nurturing environment.  Bridge Program students have an excellent opportunity to strengthen their academic skills, build an effective community, and familiarize themselves with the campus and its resources.

Students enroll for 8 or 9 credit hours during the summer half-term. All students take courses in writing, mathematics, and a first-year seminar.  These academically rigorous courses are credit-bearing, fulfill degree requirements,  and become part of the student's official University of Michigan transcript.

Bridge Program students are assigned an academic advisor who will support them from orientation through graduation; providing guidance on course selection, career planning, and progress towards fulfilling degree requirements.
