What is the Bridge Program?
Eastern Wyoming College hosts a program created to help students advance more swiftly through developmental level classes in math, reading, and English just before their first semester at EWC. Intense academic instruction and career orientation provides an opportunity to retake the Next Generation Accuplacer Placement Exam at the end of the program. This means you can place into higher level math, reading, or English classes. Higher test results can mean skipping a developmental level course and saving time and money! Textbooks and supplies will also be provided, free of charge, by the Bridge Program.
Who can apply to the Bridge Program?
Based on Next Generation Accuplacer Placement Exam or ACT scores, students that score into developmental courses may apply. Apply early, as limited slots are available.
