The Summer Bridge Transition Program is designed to enrich academic skills for those high school graduates who do not test directly into college-level courses. The two-week program will focus on enhancing skills in the areas of math, reading and English. 

Students will be selected for the program based on assessment scores (ACT, Accuplacer, or Compass) and date of their enrollment application to Mountwest. Students will be required to meet each day for a total of four hours per day. Students will also be responsible for completing in-class and out-of-class assignments. Upon completion of the program, students who successfully complete the final assessment will be placed directly into the college-level courses required for their degree program.

Seating is limited. For more information, please contact Veella Grooms, Mountwest Student Success Counselor, at (304) 710-3386 or Megan Russell, Mountwest Director of Student Recruitment at (304) 710-3359.

Enrollment is also going on for general summer courses. Students interested in registration information can contact the Office of Student Services at (304) 710-3361.
