Bridge is a residential summer program for Upward Bound students who have graduated high school and plan to attend the University of Utah. Participants have the opportunity to begin their freshman year during the 6 week second term of summer semester. Students will live on campus, take classes for college credit, and receive guidance on University of Utah policies and procedures while also developing a strong supportive network of peers, staff and instructors. Once the summer program finishes, students continue to work with a Student Support Services advisor on class selection, financial aid process, and other areas of need throughout their time at the University of Utah.
