A new, free tuition program will be available for qualified
students who want to attend Arapahoe Community College this summer.
The summer pilot program known as the Summer Bridge program is
designed to create a smooth transition to go to college for
students who are motivated but may require some remediation before
pursuing their goals.
Students who are accepted into the program will be granted free
tuition and books for two college courses during the summer
semester. The program starts during the last week of May and is 10
weeks long. Students in the program will participate in educational
workshops, free tutoring, personal advising, professional mentoring
and financial aid assistance.
ACC is looking for 15 motivated students who will graduate this
spring with a minimum grade-point average of 1.7. Students must be
first-time college students or under the age of 20 and completing
their GED with financial need. Students who successfully complete
this program will have access to other ACC scholarships, most
notably the First Generation Scholarship, which will cover up to 80
percent of tuition per year for the next two years.
