Student-Athlete Academic Services (SAAS) at the University of Hawaii at Manoa provides a summer bridge program designed specifically for incoming students who have been identified as academically at-risk or under-prepared. These students are identified by academic advisors upon review of prior academic evaluations. Students are then recommended for the Summer Bridge Program. Summer Bridge is an intensive six-week academic readiness program. The targeted students are required to take two academic courses. The summer bridge program cohort develops study skills and is introduced to techniques that will assist them in becoming more academically ready prior to their first full-time semester as a college student.
