Questions and Contact


Do I need to sign up for Summer Bridge this summer?

Yes, you need to sign up for one of the three Summer Bridge sessions. You only need to attend one Summer Bridge session.

Do I need supplies for Summer Bridge?

You will need a computer and access to the internet for your virtual Summer Bridge event. We also recommend the following items:

  • A notebook and pen/pencil to take notes
  • Some water and a snack – it’s a long event
  • We recommend you let the people you’re living with know when your Summer Bridge session is so they can plan to give you as much quiet space as possible to allow you to focus and engage.

Is Summer Bridge mandatory?

Yes, Summer Bridge attendance is required for all new Seattle Promise students. If you do not attend a Summer Bridge session, you will lose Seattle Promise eligibility, including the Seattle Promise scholarship and other supports.

Who is my Retention Specialist and when will we meet?

You will be able to see your assigned Seattle Promise Retention Specialist when you log in to Starfish. They will be at Summer Bridge so you’ll get to see their face. You can also schedule a meeting with them before Summer Bridge if you want by using Starfish.
