Who Can Attend?

Preference will be given to students whose ELM-EPT test scores require them to take two math and two English courses in preparation for college-level courses in these areas.


Take Classes You Need and Get Ahead

Summer Bridge Academy lets you complete courses you'll need to take anyway, so you can get ahead, at no cost for qualified applicants. Summer Bridge Academy dates are from June 30 through August 8, 2014, Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm (if taking two courses) or 8:30 am to 12:00 pm or 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm (if taking one course). Summer Bridge Academy Orientation will take place during the week of June 23-27, 2014.

Start Your CSUDH Experience Strong

The six weeks you spend at the Summer Bridge Academy will prepare you for the classroom and for college. Summer Bridge Academy is  free to qualified applicants and consists of academic courses and cohort workshops that provide students the opportunity to develop study skills, network with peers and faculty, and connect to campus resources. This is one summer that could change your future - and your life.

Learn From CSUDH Faculty

Summer Bridge Academy 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.

You'll learn your way around, while also learning about all the resources available to you - including the Loker Student Union, the newly expanded University Library, math and English learning labs, and the computer labs.

Meet Your 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 Academy will last throughout your college experience and beyond.
