Bridge Scholars Program 2014-2015


The Bridge Scholars Program is a conditional admission program for freshman applicants who demonstrate potential for success in college but who we feel would benefit from a transitional support program in order to maximize their achievements at Georgia College. Bridge candidates are nominated for the program by the Admissions Office following a review of the application materials and then must interview for a competitive spot in the program.  

Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis following each interview date until the program is full. Enrollment is limited to approximately 125 students.  Students are notified of their admission status within one to two weeks of the interview. Decisions are final and not subject to appeal.

Once admitted, students begin their freshman year with an intensive five-week summer program that is designed to assist them in transitioning from high school to college and help them to build a strong academic foundation. Students who pass the summer semester with a grade of C or better in all classes earn full admission to Georgia College for the fall.

BSP is a Residential Learning Community at Georgia College focusing on freshman success. Students in the BSP commit to spending their freshman year living and learning together as a group. Peer mentoring, tutoring, and special programs such as speakers, workshops, community service projects and socials are offered exclusively to the BSP community.
