The cost of the Summer Bridge program includes student health insurance coverage. You will be able to find assistance with medical issues at University Health and Counseling Services (UHCS) – a resource to help all students stay healthy, physically and mentally, and to provide care.
Academic support services
Summer Bridge students have access to a wide range of resources at Northeastern, including tutoring and disability support services, writing consultation, and the University libraries.
Arrival Week provides you with the information you need to be successful academically, culturally and socially during the Summer Bridge and beyond. Planned activities will familiarize you with the campus and surrounding city, introduce you to staff and classmates, and help you settle in to your residence hall.
Global Student Ambassadors
We hire current Northeastern University students as Global Student Ambassadors during the Summer Bridge term. They are your peer guides to the University, the city of Boston and US student life.
