Greetings and welcome to the Office of Undergraduate Education (OUE). We offer undergraduate students the opportunity to discover their intellectual, creative, and professional passions by introducing them to many interconnected areas of knowledge. Our initiatives include the Freshman Core Program, Summer Bridge, Quarterly Student Showcase, and many other exciting opportunities!
The Summer Bridge Program is an invitation-only program at the University of Washington Tacoma that provides incoming freshmen with tools and resources to jumpstart their first year in college. The Summer Bridge prepares students to get a head start by becoming familiar with campus resources, other students, and college life! Summer Bridge begins August 18 through September 15, so students take courses during the end of the second summer session leading into the fall. Students who attend Bridge Programs often evaluate the experience favorably. They enjoy the social aspects and appreciate the connections It provides them.
