Are you ready to prepare for your first year at UB and make a successful transition to our university? EOP's mandatory, residential academic programs will introduce you to UB and assist with the transition to our campus culture.

EOP offers two summer programs – a Freshman Summer Bridge Program and a Transfer Bridge Program – which help students acclimate to the rigor and demands of academic life and familiarize them with undergraduate programs, services and learning resources.

During this program, you will be immersed in a highly structured and intensive program with academic, credit-bearing course offerings that will strengthen your reading, writing, mathematics and communication skills. In addition to the required academic courses, you will also enjoy a full schedule of recreational and social activities.
