Summer Transition Program

Free 8-week bridge courses and free 3-week accelerated academic review boot camps for students who will be new to BHCC beginning in the fall of 2016.

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

  • Boot Camps – intensive three-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. Boot Camps are targeted to students with Accuplacer results near a threshold score for college-level or upper developmental level English and/or math.
  • "Bridge" Classes – eight-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.
