Aggie Success Academy (ASA) Summer Bridge Program

Target Population

First year students entering the University who are North Carolina residents.

 

ASA Is a Challenging and Rewarding Pre-College Residential Program

Interested students will have the opportunity to receive one of twenty-six summer scholarships to attend the ASA. This program provides a transitional experience in preparation for the fall semester.  Participants of the program will reside on campus for 6 weeks during the second summer session (June-August).

While in this program, New Incoming Freshmen will achieve early successes, generate credit hours, and have an advantage in becoming acclimated to the campus environment in advance of the rest of the freshman class. This program is designed to equip students with the skills needed to have a successful academic career at A&T.
