The Bridges Program
Anderson University offers a program to help students with specific learning disabilities and/or ADHD achieve their educational goals. The Bridges program provides these students an extra layer of support during the transition from high school to college.
During their first semester, students who are accepted into the Bridges program must take a two-credit-hour college survival skills/study skills course that is taught by a DSS staff member/members. Freshmen enrolled in the program are typically limited to a lighter course load during their first semester. Students are fully integrated into the university and follow the regular curriculum and requirements for graduation.
Students who wish to apply to the Bridges program must notify the DSS director. Documentation of a specific learning disability and/or ADHD must be provided. Students applying for the program are required to have a personal interview with the program director. Persons needing more information about this unique opportunity should contact Teresa Coplin, director of DSS, at (765) 641-4223 or firstname.lastname@example.org. There is currently no additional charge for enrollment in the program.
