at UNC Pembroke - a Summer Bridge Program for Selected Freshmen
Raising the BAR (Braves Academic Readiness) is a new summer bridge program designed for freshmen students at UNC Pembroke who do not meet regular admissions requirements. This program is available to a limited number of students and will give students who would not normally be admitted, but who demonstrate academic potential, the opportunity to take courses at UNCP. Students may earn up to 7 hours of college credit in the summer program as well as receive extra support with the transition to college, and costs are covered for those students who are selected.
Students must enroll in the following courses: ENG 1050 Composition I, MAT 1050 Introduction to College Mathematics, and PED 1010 Wellness and Fitness for a total of 7 credit hours.
Dates: Raising the BAR runs with Summer Session II. The program begins in late June and ends the first week in August.
Raising the BAR is a residential program during the summer session as required by UNC General Administration.
The requirements of the program include:
This program has a separate admissions process. Students must first apply to UNC Pembroke though the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, and eligible students will be referred to the Director of Raising the BAR. Then, eligible candidates must submit an admissions essay specific to the BAR program (Please contact the Director of Raising the BAR for essay requirements and details). In addition, BAR candidates will be required to go through a personal interview on campus if invited by the Director.
