EBP is a full- time academic transition program for new undergraduate students. You'll receive intensive instruction with an emphasis on academic preparation for a degree.
You'll enroll as a first-semester freshman and take a mix of academic courses and ESL. All credits count toward your degree.
You will also be mentored and coached through your first academic year to ensure your success.
What You'll Learn:
You will pay the regular undergraduate, out-of-state tuition, fees, room and board. The EBP is part of the cost of the first semester and scholarships may be awarded to support your study if you are enrolled in this program.

Classes are 75 minutes and meet Monday - Friday.
You'll receive six credits total for EBP courses: TESL 309 (3) and TESL 310 (3). Bridge students take one course from their major and one course from the Core Curriculum.
At the beginning of the semester, you will take a standardized pre-test, which includes an oral interview and written essay, to determine your strengths and needs.
At the end of the semester, you will take a post-test to measure your progress.
