Summer Bridge Support Services

All Summer Bridge program participants get the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the Cal Poly Pomona campus culture prior to their first Fall term. Our partnership does not end after Summer Bridge. As an EOP student your community engagement and holistic support continues until graduation! We have supported thousands of students' transition from high school to Cal Poly Pomona and we want to be there for you too. EOP students ARRM yourself for the college challenge and join us for this once in a lifetime opportunity!

The following are some of the support services Summer Bridge students will have access to:
