Summer Bridge

Spend the Summer Building Your Future!

Start strong at CSUDH through Summer Bridge. This six-week program is a part of CSUDH's First Year Experience (DHFYE) and it's a great way to complete required coursework and build your skills in English and Math. It's also a great way to start building the confidence you'll need to succeed in college.


Who Can Apply?

Summer Bridge is open to students who are required to participate in Early Start by taking extra classes in English and Math during the summer to prepare for college-level coursework.


Take Classes You Need

Summer Bridge lets you complete courses you'll need to take anyway, so you can get ahead. Financial aid may be available to help cover the cost of summer classes, if you qualify.


Start Your College Experience Strong

The six weeks you spend at Summer Bridge will prepare you for the classroom and for college. This is one summer that could change your future -- and your life.


Learn From CSUDH Faculty

Summer Bridge English and Math classes are taught on the CSUDH campus, under the mentoring guidance of CSUDH faculty. Classes are small and supportive, which means you'll have plenty of interaction with your professors who are here to see you succeed.


Get Familiar with the Campus

Participating in Summer Bridge will give you a great introduction to CSUDH's beautiful campus and to student life. You'll learn your way around, while also discovering all the resources available to you, including the Loker Student Union, the University Library, math and English learning labs, and computer labs.


Meet Fellow Students

You'll be joining a group of other first-time students attending CSUDH, who are also building their academic skills to prepare for college. The friendships you make at Summer Bridge will last throughout your college experience and beyond.
