How much does it cost to be enrolled in the Summer Bridge?

It is free. We will provide the ALEKS software. An online curriculum that will get you available to take a core math course without a support class (Developmental or Co-Requisite), once you have successfully completed the course.

Why should I enroll in the Summer Bridge? Why not just take a developmental or co-requisite course?

SHSU is not offering a developmental course any more; therefore; by enrolling in the Summer Bridge, you automatically qualify for one of the co-requisite courses. Once you have successfully completed the bridge you will be enrolled into your core math course and saving approximately over $1,000 and getting you on a faster track towards graduation. In addition, we will monitor you to make sure you stay on track once you have enrolled into your core math class. We want to make sure you get through all of your math classes.

What if I don’t complete the Summer Bridge? What are my options?

If for some reason, something comes up during the course of the Summer Bridge session and you are not able to complete the program, we will assist you in setting up to take the TSI (this will be your cost). You will be able to the TSIA at any school, community college, or university that has a testing center that proctors the TSIA. SHSU has a testing center on their main campus and their website is: https://www.shsu.edu/centers/testing.
