A: Participation in Summer Bridge is by invitation only. Newly entering EOP Freshmen who participate in the Summer Bridge Information Meetings will be considered for participation. If you have been admitted as an EOP student, and have returned your EOP Acceptance Agreement, you will be sent an email invitation to participate in Summer Bridge.

Are there anymore requirements for attending Summer Bridge?
Students who are not EPT and ELM exempt must take the EPT and/or the ELM no later than the early May test day for all CSU campuses (please check the current EPT/ELM testing schedule). If you take the exam(s) at another CSU, you must request that your test scores be sent to Cal Poly Pomona.
The University requires that you submit your 8th semester high school transcripts showing that you have graduated from high school to the University Admissions Office by July 15th. Should your 8th semester transcripts not be received by this date, your offer of admission to the University will be rescinded. Participating in Summer Bridge will not change this. Check with your high school office to make sure this will not be a problem.
You should register to secure a date for a summer orientation session as soon as you receive an invitation from Orientation Services. Should you be selected to participate in Summer Bridge we will make the appropriate arrangements to accommodate your orientation program.
Should you change your mind and decide not to attend Summer Bridge after being accepted into the program, you will be responsible for logging onto BroncoDirect to register for a University Orientation Program session.
May I leave campus during the program or have visitors?
Summer Bridge is a "Closed Campus" program. In order to ensure students' safety and for the students to obtain the greatest benefit from the program, students will stay on campus from Sunday through Thursday.
Students check-out of the residence hall every Thursday by 8:00 p.m., and check-in by Sunday at 6:00 p.m. (not before 5:00 p.m.). Families may visit their students' room at check-in and check-out each week. There are no visitation hours during the week.
Summer Bridge is a comprehensive program. Due to the intensity of classes, workshops, seminars, tutorials, and residential activities, as well as restrictions on leaving our campus, students are not permitted work Sunday through Thursday each week during the program. It is possible students may work Thursday evening to Sunday morning, however, this is discouraged. Students will be given homework each day and over the weekend.
