Attention! Summer Bridge Program Updates

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, EOP will be offering a Virtual Summer Bridge Program. The health and safety of our current and prospective students is our highest priority. We will provide more details as they are made available on this website. In the interim, we encourage all prospective students to follow the “Getting Started” steps below.

The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) provides a Summer Bridge experience to assist with the transition to our University. Participation in this program is mandatory in order to be fully accepted into the EOP program. Since our program will be delivered virtually, we will work to ensure that each student is accommodated appropriately with the necessary equipment.

During the program participants can expect to be acclimated to the rigor and demands of academic life as a UB student. The program will include (but is not limited to) credit-bearing course offerings and workshops to strengthen academic and personal wellness skills. Students will also enjoy opportunities to engage interactively with peers and UB faculty/staff within this online format.

The summer program will take place July 5 through Aug. 1, 2020.
