PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. – There is still time to register for Central Arizona College’s 2018 Summer Bridge program. Recent high school graduates, beginning with the class of 2016, and GED recipients are invited to experience life as a college student this summer.

  Summer Bridge will take place Aug. 12-16 at the CAC Signal Peak Campus (8470 N. Overfield Road, Coolidge, AZ.)

  Summer Bridge is a free five-day extended orientation to college. During Summer Bridge, students learn valuable skills in time-management, health and wellness, financial management and money matters, decision-making, and many other topics crucial to success in college.

  For more than 15 years, Summer Bridge at Central Arizona College has provided students an engaging and exciting college orientation. The TRIO Summer Bridge program is the only all-inclusive residential college orientation program held in Arizona.

  Among the benefits for students who attend TRIO Summer Bridge is the Peer Mentor program. Students are assigned a peer mentor and are encouraged to meet with their mentor as often as necessary throughout the fall semester while they adjust to college life.

  Other benefits of being enrolled as a TRIO student include:

• Individualized advising and academic and social support to make college completion a reality

• Exciting trips throughout the semester

• Visits to all universities throughout the state of Arizona

• Application fee waivers for all in-state universities upon transfer

• Free tutoring, copying, faxing, and the use of laptops in the TRIO office
