What to Expect

Welcome to Seattle Colleges! All new Seattle Promise scholars participate in Summer Bridge as a requirement of the Seattle Promise scholarship and to launch their educational pathways in college.

We’ve focused our traditional Summer Bridge activities to provide you with the tools and skills you will need to be successful in your first quarter of college while in an online environment. At Summer Bridge, you will meet your Seattle Promise Retention Specialist, meet some of your faculty, and learn how to navigate your online classes.
