The Summer Bridge Program is a six week, transition program that helps incoming, first-year students adjust to Carolina by providing academic enrichment, community building and, co-curricular and experiential learning activities.

Any student who has been admitted to UNC Chapel Hill and is a North Carolina Resident is eligible to apply. The cost of housing and tuition are covered by the program. All participants receive a stipend at orientation that can be used to cover the costs of books, on-campus dining options, and other on-campus expenses. Students are responsible for providing meals, supplies for the residence hall (bedding, toiletries, etc.), supplies for classes, and any extra-curricular expenses.
