Navigate Summer Bridge Academy

Navigate Summer Bridge Academy 2024 (July 6 - August 10)

The Navigate Summer Bridge Academy is a 5-week residential experience that is intended to support the transition to Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi by introducing students to college-level academic concepts and coursework while helping them get acquainted with our campus, its faculty, and one another. Specifically, the program is intended to help scholars who are identified as "not college ready" in Mathematics based on the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) assessment who would like begin their college journey early.

This FREE fully residential program will be offered during the Summer II 2024 semester (July 8 – August 9), with move-in and a family orientation on Saturday, July 6, 2024.

The benefits of participating include: 

  • earning 4-5 FREE credits toward your degree prior to the start of the Fall 2024 semester,
  • the cultivation of one-on-one mentorship with TAMU-CC faculty and peers,
  • early access to TAMU-CC support culture,
  • guided career and academic advisement,
  • practice with learning experiences and habits, and
  • the opportunity to achieve College Ready status in Mathematics.

Students are required to reside on campus during the entirety of program. They must commit to being on campus from move-in on July 6, 2024 to move-out on August 10, 2024. Because this program involves intensive instruction in Mathematics each class day, we do not encourage students to apply who would need to miss multiple classes for any reason. Additionally, we would discourage students from working off-campus during their time in the Navigate Summer Bridge Academy, since time away from campus interferes with a student’s ability to fully engage in all of the programming and events.

All tuition/fees, housing, meals, course materials, and program activities are absolutely free!

Qualification Criteria:

  • Not college ready in Mathematics based on TSI Assessment scores
  • Admitted for the Fall 2024 semester
  • Registered for and attend Islander Launch before July 6, 2024 

Space is limited to 50 students!

Eligible students will be sent invitations to apply to the Navigate Summer Bridge Academy beginning in mid-March 2024.
