About Bengal Bridge

Bengal Bridge is a 7-week summer college semester with a bonus: tuition is only $65.00 per credit hour for recently graduated high school seniors. You can earn 6-9 college credits, including general education courses, that count toward your degree. Small class sizes, specialized tutoring, and supplemental instruction will help you successfully transition from high school to college.

Bengal Bridge 2020 will be June 15 - July 31, 2020.

  • You are not required to live on campus, but we highly recommend that they do because of additional support, campus activities, and friendships.
