Bridge Pathway Program Student Orientation for English Language and Bridge students

Orientation for all new Bridge Pathway Program students is offered before the beginning of every term. Attendance at orientation is required, because students learn about their class schedules, visa requirements, and books. International college students follow their own orientation agenda.
