Summer Bridge

Summer Bridge is a residential five-week academically intensive program where 60 students get the opportunity to develop the necessary skills to succeed at SJSU. During the program, students take English, math, and college readiness classes. They also participate in activities that will help them learn the campus culture, identify all resources available to them, and build community with other first-generation college students. Summer Bridge comes at no cost to all participants.

Who Can Participate?

Eligible students will be contacted directly by our office with information about the program, whether or not it's mandatory for them to participate, and any steps they have to take before attending Summer Bridge.

If you'd like more information on the program, please contact Jesus Jimenez, Transition Support Programs Coordinator, at
