Summer Bridge 2015

It’s not too early to think about Summer Bridge 2016!

Summer Bridge 2016 will be Sunday, July 10 – Thursday, August 11. More detailed information will be available soon.

What is the TRIO/Student Support Services (SSS) Summer Bridge Program?

Augsburg TRIO/SSS allows 25 admitted first-year students to get a head start on their Augsburg education. During this five-week residential program students take two college courses for credit and attend academic support seminars, workshops, and other activities to help provide for a smooth transition to Augsburg in the fall. Summer Bridge participants will also participate in the academic year component of TRIO/SSS while enrolled at Augsburg.

Who is eligible for TRIO/SSS Summer Bridge?

Augsburg TRIO/SSS participants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents or refugees pursuing their first bachelor’s degree. Participants must be incoming Augsburg College students who plan to start fall 2016. Program participants must demonstrate academic need for services and meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Low-income student: a student whose family meets federal income eligibility guidelines, as verified by Augsburg College;
  • First generation college student: a student where neither custodial parent/guardian has graduated from a four-year institution at the time of the student’s enrollment in the TRIO/SSS program; and
  • College student with documented disabilities, as verified by either the Augsburg Center for Learning and Adaptive Student Services (CLASS) office or the Augsburg ACCESS Center.

Students must also have a commitment to their college success.
