Summer Bridge Programs

Summer view of Baird Point and Lake La Salle.

Our summer bridge programs are designed to ease the transition from high school to college by providing new, undergraduate students with the academic skills and social resources needed to succeed in a college environment.


Connecting, supporting and guiding first-generation* students throughout their college journey begins in July, with UB's Virtual First-Generation Summer Bridge Program.

* UB defines a student whose parent(s) or legal guardian(s) has not achieved a bachelor’s degree at the time of the person's first application for admission to the university, or the student’s first application for financial aid at UB as a first-generation college student.
