The Collegiate Success Institute (CSI) Summer Bridge Program offers new students the opportunity to JUMP START their college career at UMBC!

Students can participate in one or two tracks: a MATH TRACK to help prepare for college level mathematics and a WRITING TRACK to help prepare for college level writing, reading, and research. Students that participate in this program will build a strong academic foundation for their time in college while also learning success skills, making friends, and becoming familiar with everything UMBC has to offer.Scholarship information

All new students are required to complete their Math and English General Education Program (GEP) requirements during their first year on campus. With the CSI Program, students can get either or both of these requirements finished before they even start the fall semester while earning 4 to 7 academic credits. Participants will also receive proactive advising from the Office of Undergraduate Education as well as advanced access to an advisor from their intended major.

Please browse our website for additional information about the CSI Program. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns or if you are wondering if the CSI Program is a good fit for you.
