The College Bridge Program is designed to support underrepresented minority and economically disadvantaged students as they make the transition from high school to NIU. The goal of the program is to increase the retention and graduation rates of traditionally admitted students. Program participants attend a four-week summer program between their junior and senior year of high school and an eight-week summer program between their senior year and matriculation to Northern Illinois University. The program provides mentoring, college readiness workshops, campus visits, and assists students in developing a network of support that will connect them to the university community.
