Attendee Information

Virtual Program

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), as a precaution, we are not offering a commuter program. We want you to stay healthy and safe. We do not know how long this going to last; therefore, we made the decision to change the program format this year to online. You will need access to the internet and a computer to do your assignments, attend classes and workshops which will be offered through CANVAS and Zoom.

Working During the Program

We highly recommend that students do not work during Summer Bridge since students will have an intense, full-time academic workload.
