Tiger Success Summer Bridge Program
WHAT IS SUMMER TIGER SUCCESS BRIDGE (TSB) PROGRAM?
The Tiger Success Bridge Program is a four-week academic enrichment and leadership development program that provides a seamless transitional opportunity for first-time freshmen to get an early, strong start on their college careers. By completing up to 6 college credit hours during the summer, students have the opportunity to be better prepared for the academic, personal, and social obstacles that they may encounter while acclimating to a college campus. In addition to tutoring, study skills training, and workshops, the program provides peer mentorship to equip and support participants.
Because this is a pilot program, we can only allow 50 students to participate.
Registration for Tiger Success Summer Bridge ends May 31.
