Summer Bridge Program


  • Step Beyond Summer Bridge Program

    Step Beyond is a comprehensive, four-week residential summer bridge program that provides conditionally admitted students the opportunity to earn admission to the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES). Participants will receive enhanced instruction in reading, writing, mathematics, critical thinking, and study skills while gaining college experience and living in state of the art residence halls. Dates for the Step Beyond program will be announced as future programming is finalized.

    Step Beyond will help participants build a strong foundation by providing some of the tools, information, and skills that will carry them through their college life and beyond prior to the rest of the incoming freshman class. Participants will also become a part of a learning community that will keep them connected to Step Beyond through their first year at UMES through group and individual academic coaching sessions and common courses.
