Early Start Summer Bridge Opportunity
Early Start is a 5-week summer residential program that offers newly admitted first-year students an opportunity to earn up to six (6) hours of graded credit before the Fall semester begins. On top of the academic benefits, here are some other perks of joining Early Start:
Free room and board during the program
Receive FREE textbooks (up to $250) and UNT gear
Build a community with other students who are similarly motivated
Attend daily gatherings that foster community and allow you to dive deeper into your academic experience at UNT.
Any incoming freshman student already admitted to the University of North Texas is eligible to apply. First-generation and low-income students are encouraged to apply.
Early Start is held during Summer Session II (June 26 - July 28) and includes classroom instruction, tutoring, academic coaching, mentoring, and various workshops designed to help students transition more smoothly into university life.
