Bridge Program

University of Saint Francis (IN)

The Bridge Program at the University of Saint Francis targets students who do not meet the university's initial entrance requirements. The program offers academic counseling, mathematics and English tutoring, writing skills training and time-management skills. Successful students are placed in several common classes in the fall semester so that they can continue to help each other address problem areas.

The program has grown from three participating students in 2006 to 25 in each of the last three years.  Funding for the program comes from the institution.

Bottom Line:  Retention has increased from 75 percent to 82 percent for the Fall 2009 cohort.
