If our admissions department has notified you that you have been admitted conditionally, then you are in the right place to read up on information about our Summer Bridge Program.
Held on our campus for 5 weeks in the summer, Summer Bridge is a mandatory program for those who are admitted conditionally based on their SAT/ACT scores. Summer Bridge provides you with the opportunity to take pre-college or first-year level courses to prepare for your first semester in college. Summer Bridge must be completed successfully with C's or higher in order to enroll in 2013 Fall semester classes.
Summer Bridge is a great experience, but we also expect you to take it seriously. Chaminade University believes you have the potential to be a successful college student. Summer Bridge is the way for you to show that to us, and to yourself.
Summer Bridge begins on Sunday, July 14th, 2013. Read up on:
What classes will I take?
You will take 2 classes during the 5 weeks of Summer Bridge. These classes will be chosen for you based on your SAT/ACT scores.
We feel that these represent the coursework that you most need to be well-prepared for your first semester of college.
How difficult is it?
As we noted, you must successfully complete each class with a grade of C or higher to enroll in the fall. Fortunately, you will be surrounded by supportive staff and faculty who will assist you in achieving success. Free tutoring is available for all coursework during the Summer Bridge. Also, advisors and peer mentors are available to help guide you through the summer and through the rest of your college career.
What does it cost?
The Summer Bridge session tuition is an additional amount not included in fall or spring tuition. Also, you will have room and board expenses if you will live on campus. Be sure to see the costs overview page.
