Summer Bridge 2016!

Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays June 20-July 27

Get Ahead and Fulfill College Requirements for Free!


Do you want to raise your English and Math placement and get connected to your campus?

You could save over $1,000 in tuition & fees and develop the skills and confidence to succeed!


*Summer Bridge is a full scholarship program. Workshops are not credit-bearing, but students who successfully complete the requirements of the program will receive course waivers and have the opportunity to retake placement exams within the program.*


 All students take English, College Success, and Math workshops.

A score of 30 on the English placement exam is the key to eligibility for the program.

  • English: At the end of the program, students who have demonstrated readiness in English will receive a W130 waiver and may enroll in a 3 credit W131 in the fall semester.
  • College Success:  In the College Success workshop, students learn and apply skills that will help prepare them to meet the challenges and rigors of college. 
  • Math: The Math workshops provide students the opportunity to review ALEKS tutorials with faculty and tutor support and retake the placement exam at the end of the program.


You can choose from morning or afternoon sessions.

See schedule options here.

Enrollment is limited

To apply, you must be accepted by IU South Bend for Fall 2016. Take IU South Bend’s placement exams and complete a Summer Bridge application by June 13, 2016.
