Summer Bridge Program

The IUPUI Summer Bridge Program is a two-week program for incoming first-year students held in August before fall classes begin. Students are divided into groups of 25 based on their interest in pursuing a particular major or in exploring various major options. Summer Bridge participants establish networks for success with faculty, advisors, student mentors, and librarians; make friends with other students; learn about college-level expectations for reading and writing; receive individualized support for math; begin connecting with a school and major; become acquainted with the campus; and gain experience in using instructional technology.
