The Summer Bridge Program is an academic learning community held during an 8-week Summer session bridging the gap between high school to college. Summer Bridge 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 three additional years.
