Orientation: Thursday, July 13 from 10:00-2:00pm 

Summer Bridge is a free, three-week program that welcomes all in-coming, first-year students entering Chabot College. We want to “bridge” students into a community of learners by taking academic courses, learning about resources, gaining knowledge and skills to succeed early on in a fun, welcoming summer! This program is a major step to completing a degree, certificate and/or transfer within three years. We also want to encourage our students to enter and learn more about STEM majors and careers as this program is funded by the HSI STEM Grant.
