The Summer Bridge Program
The Summer Bridge Program at Peru State College is an exclusive experience for new SSS members designed to give you a head start to your freshman year. You will move on campus early, meet fellow SSS members and staff, and complete a one-credit course. You also have the option of completing Bobcat Brush-up - a noncredit math refresher before summer bridge starts.

Bobcat Brush-up/Math Academy August 6 - August 11, 2023
Bobcat Brush-up/Math Academy is an optional session just before the Summer Bridge class. It is designed to give you a quick refresher in math topics to help you hit your first year of college running! It may also be possible to test out of a placement in Math 100. Bobcat Brush-up participants are required to enroll in the Summer Bridge class immediately following the end of the Brush-up.
The Summer Bridge/Bobcat Brush-up program is financially supported by a federal TRiO grant and Peru State College. All tuition, room and meal charges are waived; all course materials are provided at no charge to the student. The only cost you will need to pay is the fees on the 1-credit course (approximately $75) which is included in your fall bill.
