High School Seniors Invited to Apply for UVI Summer Bridge Program; Deadline March 20

The UVI Center for Student Success at the University of the Virgin Islands is inviting applications from high school seniors for the 2015 Summer Bridge Program.

The program which is valued at more than $4,000 and offered at no cost to participants, is designed to assist students in making the transition from high school to college. 

This year’s program is scheduled to run from June 21 to July 24.  During the five weeks, students will reside on campus and take the equivalent of 13 credits. Classes in critical reading, writing, mathematics, and college success will prepare students to take the UVI placement tests and allow them to move directly into college-level, credit-bearing courses instead of spending time taking college preparatory courses in their freshman year.  Students also learn about campus resources and campus life while they form important relationships with faculty, staff and students at the University. 

 Application forms can be obtained from schools’ guidance counsellors or from the Center for Student Success at the University of the Virgin Islands on the St. Thomas and the Albert A. Sheen Campuses. The application deadline is March 20.
