If our admissions department has notified you that you have been admitted conditionally, then you
are in the right place to learn more 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 2015 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 12th, 2015. Read more about:
