Mizzou Summer Bridge Accelerator Program: June 1 – July 26, 2024

First-year, first-time college students have the opportunity to enroll in general education courses, create meaningful relationships, and become familiar with campus resources before arriving at Mizzou in the fall – giving these students an edge and setting them on the path to success.
