Summer Bridge Program
CLASSES AND SEMINARS
Attendance to assigned classes, seminars, and activities is mandatory. Excused absences are only given for illness (confirmed by a letter from the UM Student Health Center). Students are expected to be on time for all events scheduled.
The student will receive grades and college credit for the seven hours of courses taken. The student will be officially enrolled as a UM student. There will be no grades given for any of the academic segments that occur during the evening portion of the summer program. Each student will be expected to work at his/her own level of achievement. Each participant will be evaluated by the faculty of the program, and these evaluations will be shared with the participant in a private session with the Project Coordinator during the final week of the program. The evaluations will include a profile of the individual's academic and social strengths and weaknesses and an evaluation of the program from the individual student. There will be suggestions given to the students about their Fall matriculation.
Each Monday and Wednesday evenings, speakers from the campus will present seminars for the participants. These seminars will start promptly at 6:00 p.m. and will last about one hour. The purpose of the seminars is to introduce the Summer Bridge participants to the many services found on the UM campus. The schedule of seminars is given below.
