Summer Bridge 

The Mitchell Community College Summer Bridge Program is designed to help first year students gain college experience and develop a network of support prior to the beginning of their first year.  Summer Bridge serves a diverse community of first year students in a six-week academic program.  Students take one course, and meet staff who will support them during the academic year. The one course is ACA 122 College Transfer Success. Students engage in activities to support their academic and social experiences.
