Summer Bridge Program

Designed for incoming first year students, the goal of the Summer Bridge Program is to create an experience where students can live on campus before the start of the fall semester and familiarize themselves with the social and academic expectations of college. Participants will learn how to use campus resources and also connect with other first year students.

Cost for the program is $1250, and includes room, board, trips, and activities. (Payments must be paid in full before the start of the program, and cannot be combined with financial aid packages or paid by outside foundations.)

* Fall student-athletes'  pre-season practice schedules preclude them from participating in the Summer Bridge Program.

Benefits of the Program

  • Building confidence and independence before classes start
  • Experiencing residential living with a roommate**
  • Connecting with faculty, staff, and peer mentors involved in the program
  • Participating in trips and service learning opportunities

“The Bridge Program really helped me become comfortable with living at Becker College; by participating in the Bridge Program I was able to make friends before the school year began and I was given the opportunity to get used to living far away from home.”

— Audra Bell, Class of 2018 Media Design, Alpha Lambda Delta National Honor Society

**Because the Summer Bridge Program is a residential experience, all participants are expected to live on campus during the program. Students will move into their permanent residence hall, and will room with another member of the Summer Bridge Program.
