Summer Transition Program - 2020

Launched in 2012, the Summer Transition Program enables entering students with an assessed need for developmental English or math coursework to receive intensive instruction and review, in order to progress through developmental levels prior to fall entry. The program consists of:

  • Prep for Success – Intensive 3-week skill review in math and reading/writing, integrating technology and diagnostic assessment to help students prepare for retaking the Accuplacer, with the possibility of placing into higher-level courses. Prep for Success are targeted to students with Accuplacer results near a threshold score for college-level or upper developmental level English and/or math.
  • Bridge Courses – 8-week courses in developmental reading/writing and math. Bridge classes enable students to benefit from intensive instruction over the summer so that they can progress to college-level or upper developmental level courses in the fall.

Summer Transition Program Checklist

To qualify for the Summer Transition Program, applicants must be accepted to BHCC as new, readmitted or transfer students.
