What is the Bridge Program? Eastern Wyoming College hosts a program created to help students brush up on math, reading, and English skills just before their first semester at EWC. Intense academic instruction is accompanied by sessions on study skills and how to make a healthy transition into college life. Bridge Program Students retake the COMPASS Placement Exam at the end of the program and can possibly place into higher level math, reading, or English classes. Higher test results can mean skipping a developmental level course and saving time and money! Participants in the Bridge Program will also be enrolled in two FREE courses, which provide three hours of credit toward graduation. Textbooks and supplies will also be provided, free of charge, by the Bridge Program.
Who can apply to the Bridge Program? Based on COMPASS Placement Exam scores, students that score into developmental courses may apply. Apply early, as only 25 spots are available.
When is the Bridge Program? The Bridge Program is a two-week program that begins at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, August 13, 2012 and ends on Saturday, August 25, 2012. The regular semester starts Tuesday, August 28, 2012, so Bridge Program participants can smoothly transition into fall classes.
