Summer Bridge

Summer Bridge students will have their fees and expenses funded by the Summer Bridge Scholarship, based on student financial need. Summer Bridge Scholarship applicants must submit payment for only the non-refundable mandatory campus fee with their Summer Bridge enrollment form upon acceptance of the scholarship to hold their space in the program and courses. Upon completion of Summer Bridge, the campus fee will be reimbursed to students as a final portion of the scholarship.

Housing Fees

Program Housing requires a separate payment that must be completed to reserve your space.

Estimated Total* $1,043

*Proposed Housing Rate is subject to final approval. Housing Rate is for a double occupancy, furnished room.

Housing is optional, but highly recommended. Please note that there is a separate Housing contract (different from the Freshman Edge enrollment form) that must be completed in order to reserve your room for Freshman Edge. Residential contracts do not include linens or kitchen supplies. Plan to bring your own bedding, towels, and kitchen supplies. Total fee does not include a meal plan. Meal plan options will be communicated in your program welcome information. Residential students should also budget approximately $600 for food during the program.

Student Parent Orientation Program (SPOP)

All Freshman Edge students should attend SPOP in addition to Freshman Edge. Registration for SPOP is separate from Freshman Edge enrollment and requires a separate payment in order to reserve a space. Please see SPOP for more details.

Financial Aid

Financial Aid is available for students taking courses this summer. Please see our Financial Aid page for more information.
