WillÂ you graduate from high school Â between December 2014 and June 15, 2015? Have you already been admitted to attend UALR in the Fall 2015?
This component of the Student Support Services program serves as an introduction to the college experience for those who recently graduated from high school and will be attending UALR during the subsequent fall semester as 4-year degree seeking students (does not include students in pre-professional fields such as nursing and pharmacy).
Students selected to participate in the Summer Bridge Program will be introduced to the skills necessary to be successful in college and will receive individualized support in adjusting to the college environment. Through this program, students have access to services that support their transition from high school to college.
