Summer Transition Programs

Taking place before New Student Orientation, the four summer transition programs prepare select incoming first-year students to flourish at Trinity. Just over 100 incoming first-year students participate in Summer Bridge programs each summer.

Summer Bridge FYE

The Summer Bridge First Year Experience (FYE) program is an invitation-based opportunity designed specifically to welcome first-generation students and/or students from underrepresented populations to Trinity University and facilitate their transition to university life and college-level academic coursework.

Summer Bridge Math

The Summer Bridge Math program is an invitation-based opportunity for students who have expressed interest in STEM degree programs reliant on quantitative reasoning skills (including the sciences, engineering, math, and health professions) to develop their confidence and skills for starting strong in early STEM coursework.

Academic Success Program (ASP)

The Academic Success Program is required for all first-year Football students and includes sessions and workshops designed to introduce students to Trinity’s support resources and to help ease the transition to college life before Football Camp begins. The program includes a mini-course: Introduction to College Writing. More information about the program will be provided to participants by the coaching staff and Academic Support.

 


Workshops

Academic Support offers workshops at the beginning of each semester and throughout the year upon request. Faculty members, student organizations, and other campus groups can request either one of the standard workshops or a customized one to help facilitate the academic success of their students and/or members.

In lieu of providing a schedule of open workshops throughout the semester, we encourage students seeking individual support to sign up for individualized Academic Coaching so that our support can be tailored to you right when you need it.
