Bridge Program

The University of Dubuque supports all students to be successful in reaching their full potential and their academic goals. As part of UD's Bridge Program, all areas of campus life work collaboratively to assist students who come to UD with the desire to learn and succeed.

The program helps students "bridge the gaps" that may exist in their preparation for college. The program includes a Summer Bridge experience during New Student Orientation, Reading & Study Skills classes, mandatory study labs, individualized tutoring, Skills Tutor learning modules, and peer mentoring. Bridge students are selected for the program by the Director of Admission and are notified in their acceptance letter. For questions about the Bridge Program, contact the Bridge Program Director Dr. Marta Abele at or 563.589.3723.
