Bridge Program classes are follows:
- Introduction to Computing

No other undergraduate-level courses will be available to students in the Bridge Program. Classes are available in two different formats:
- Residential Format (in classrooms during the fall and spring semesters)
- Online Format (during the fall and spring semesters)
Tuition for courses in the Bridge Program is the same for all new students and is listed in the Tuition and Fees section. There is no campus fee charge for these students.
To begin in the Bridge Program, a student should contact the Admissions office at The College at Mid-America by phone or email. Students in the Bridge Program will register through the same process as bachelor-level students.
