What to Expect

Welcome to Seattle Colleges! All new Seattle Promise scholars participate in Summer Bridge as a requirement of the Seattle Promise scholarship.

Summer Bridge activities are focused to provide you with the tools and skills you need to be successful in your first quarter of college. This year, we are offering three Summer Bridge events you can choose from. All students must choose one event to attend.

Summer Bridge will be offered as a virtual event on September 14 and 15 and September 20. All three events are scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. You should plan to be at Summer Bridge for the duration of the event. 

The agenda for each session is:

  • Welcome
  • Meet new friends
  • Rotating workshops, including: Keep Your Scholarship, How to use Canvas, Academic Tenacity, Time Management, a Student Panel, and more
  • Advising Drop-In

This year, we are offering specialized workshops for Running Start students who have already earned college credit. Those workshops include: Transfer Talk, Resume Writing, and Student Engagement.
