The purpose of the ConocoPhillips Academic Success Bridge Program is to increase the retention of engineering students while increasing the potential for their academic success. The ConocoPhillips Bridge program is targeting student performance by providing tutoring for math classes while providing opportunities to learn more about studying skills, time management and other academic support services. Peer mentoring opportunities will be offered to help the freshman cope with the demands of college life.

You can attend summer school but you must be available at least 4 hours per day or 25 hours per week for five weeks. The fall semester will require 60 hours of mentoring the ConocoPhillips Academic Success Bridge Program students for an average of 4 hours per week.
