What are the Summer Bridge Program Dates?

Summer Bridge 2021 program dates are still being determined.

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

Augsburg TRIO/SSS allows up-to 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?

All Augsburg TRIO/SSS participants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents or refugees pursuing their first bachelor’s degree. Summer Bridge participants must be incoming Augsburg University students who plan to start fall 2020. All program participants must demonstrate academic need for program services and meet one or more of the following criteria:

• Low-income student: a student whose family meets federal income eligibility guidelines, as verified by Augsburg.

• 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.

• College student with documented disability, as verified by the Augsburg Center for Learning and Accessible Student Services (CLASS) office.

Students must also have a commitment to their college success.

Summer Bridge participants may also be eligible for the TRIO/SSS Summer Bridge Promise Grant.


*All incoming first year students, regardless of TRIO/SSS or Summer Bridge participation, enroll or register for classes during summer orientation (SOAR).
