Summer Bridge Program

Dixie State’s Summer Bridge Program is for students who want to improve their writing skills, place into English 1010, and be ready for the first day of class. The Bridge Program consists of approximately 8 hours of preparatory, online coursework and a one-day on-campus training. The Bridge Program is intended for incoming students who have earned an English ACT score of 10-13 and are therefore required to take English 1000— a developmental  course that prepares you to eventually take English 1010, the university’s first-year writing course. At the start of the Bridge Program, you will take the sentence-skills portion of Dixie State’s college-placement test (CPT). Don’t worry if you don’t do very well because you’ll have the chance to take it later in the day after attending the Bridge Program. The day of the bridge program, you’ll spend approximately six hours in the classroom: three in the morning (following a light breakfast) and three in the afternoon (following a delicious lunch). At the end of the afternoon class, you’ll have the chance to retake the CPT. Retaking the exam within twenty-four hours after spending the day learning about sentence-skills and writing from our finest English professors will likely boost your CPT score, enabling you to test out of English 1000 and enroll directly into English 1010. After successfully completing the CPT at the end of the program, advisors will be on standby to help you register for English 1010 so that you’re ready to go when fall semester begins. How to Register: To register for the summer bridge course, log in to your myDixie account and register for the course along with your Fall courses.
