What is TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) Summer Bridge?
The TRIO SSS Summer Bridge program is a 3-day event that takes place the week before fall quarter classes begin. New and returning TRIO SSS students participate in events that help build community, leadership, teamwork, and study skills to prepare for the upcoming 2021-2022 academic year. After summer bridge, TRIO SSS students receive continuous support throughout the duration of their associate's degree.

How much does Summer Bridge Cost?
There is no cost associated with attending summer bridge or participating in TRIO SSS. We are fully funded by the U.S. Department of Education in order to provide valuable assistance to eligible students at WVC.
