Mizzou Summer Bridge Accelerator Program

The University of Missouri’s Summer Bridge Accelerator Program is a residential academic experience that helps bridge the gap between high school and college for qualified students. 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. 

Be sure to apply by March 1.
