Delaware State University Summer Bridge Programs

Project Success

Project Success is an intensive academic program for students who place slightly below the University’s admission standards. The program is designed to provide students the opportunity to “sharpen their academic skill set” by completing credits during the summer and participating in a comprehensive academic development learning community throughout the first year. Students are invited to participate in Project Success at the discretion of the Office of Admissions, and seats in the program are limited. “Conditional Admission” status will be removed upon achieving satisfactory academic status of at least a 2.0 GPA at the end of the first year.
