Quinsigamond Community College’s Bridges to College is a free summer program for students interested in enrolling at QCC and want to get a jump-start on preparing for credit classes. Students are able to participate in one or more noncredit, accelerated college readiness seminars in Mathematics and English, in preparation for college level course work.

Upon successful completion of both English and Mathematics seminars, students will go directly into college level English and/or math in the fall. All books and computer access codes for this program are free and will be provided to students enrolled in the program. In addition to the books and codes, students must have their own functional computer or laptop and reliable connection to the Internet. For prospective students who do not have a computer or Internet, please reach out to the jzayas [at] qcc.mass.edu (Program Coordinator Julio Zayas) for more information.

Currently QCC is offering summer “In & Out English Seminar” sessions, designed to increase college readiness and to prepare students for college level reading and writing within one ultra-compressed, 45-hour, two-week schedule. This seminar will combine state-of-the-art, adaptive reading and writing technology, paired with faculty guidance, supplemental individualized instruction, and peer-to-peer learning.

Available In & Out English Seminar sessions include:

 

  • June 10 – June 23, from 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

A Mathematics Seminar is also being offered this summer and is designed to increase college readiness and to prepare students for college-level Math within one compressed, five-week schedule.

Math Seminars combine state-of-the-art, online teaching and technology paired with faculty guidance, supplemental individualized instruction, and peer-to-peer learning.  Dates for the Summer II Math Seminar are July 6-August 13. During each session, students will meet with instructors for one hour on Tuesday – Thursday, or Monday - Wednesday at the specified time. If necessary, there can be flexibility on one-to-one study scheduling.
