Summer Bridge

UNC Pembroke Summer Bridge is a six-week academic success program that engages incoming first year scholars and prepares them to discover, belong and thrive as they transition to a university environment at little to no cost.

  • Discover their passions through transformative educational experiences and self-exploration that fosters personal and academic growth
  • Belong at UNCP through active participation and commitment to their discipline, career, and campus community
  • Thrive academically and socially through shared campus experiences cultivated by UNCP's unique history and resources in order to meet the changing needs of our diverse and inclusive community

Summer Bridge is designed for various underrepresented incoming students that plan to study in the fields of science, business or mathematics to ease their transition to the university.  Enrolled students will take college-level courses and engage in academic success and career exploration workshops while developing leadership skills and becoming an active and engaged citizen.  Offered Summer Session II: June 26 – August 1, 2024 (June 24-25 Required Kick-off events)
