Summer Bridge Program

The U-M Summer Bridge Program is offered through the Comprehensive Studies Program at the College of Literature, Science and the Arts (www.lsa.umich.edu/csp/studentprograms/summerbridgeprogram). Started in 1975, the program gives students the opportunity to strengthen academic skills, develop a peer support network and familiarize themselves with the campus during the summer months before their freshman year. Click here for a list of important dates for the Bridge Program.

Many Bridge Program students and families would like to be considered for financial aid for both the Summer Bridge semester and the following Fall and Winter semesters. Steps for applying for aid can be found below (We suggest that students submit documents for the Summer Bridge program and Fall/Winter aid at the same time).

Both student and one parent need a Personal Identification Number (PIN) or a Federal Student Aid ID number. This is used to electronically sign the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application. You will use this number each year, so keep it in a safe place and do not share it with anyone including a tax preparer. To apply, visit www.pin.ed.gov.

Visit www.finaid.umich.edu/Wolverine for information about creating a Wolverine Access account and a Friend Account for a parent/guardian to have access to Student Account and financial aid data.
