“I gave up a trip to Mexico to participate in the summer program and I can say it was one of the best decisions I could have made.”

The Summer Bridge Program is an academic learning community held during the 8-week Summer Session that bridges the gap from High School to College. Summer Bridge Program offers the first year, first-time college students an opportunity to enroll in general education courses and utilize campus resources to achieve success at MU.


  • Earn credit hours toward general education requirements.
  • Receive academic tutoring and coaching to become a more effective student.
  • Attend workshops and discussions built around increasing adaptability and resilience.
  • Develop relationships with faculty and students to support students’ college careers.
  • Become familiar with campus resources and the college experience.
  • Upon successful completion of the program, students are eligible for a scholarship opportunity. The scholarship is worth $2,500 for the academic year and is renewable for the three additional years.
