The Academic Success Center offers two bridge programs to help students succeed and transition to UNLV: Math Bridge and First-Gen Connect.
The Math Bridge Program is an online program designed to help students who are placed into preparatory math classes (Math 95/Math 96) or gateway math classes (Math 120/124/126) but require a different 100-level math course for their desired major. The program combines online learning with ASC staff assistance to help students gain a better understanding of core math concepts and overcome their math anxiety. The program utilizes the online platform, ALEKS, which can be used during Math Bridge class time and during personal time if students wish to work on concepts independently. Currently, all Math Bridges are conducted during summer sessions for eligible students.
First-Gen Connect is a free program for first-generation college students (students whose parents do not have a four-year college degree). The program helps first-generation college students’ transition into UNLV by discussing potential barriers to success and equipping students with the knowledge and resources necessary for a successful first-year and beyond while at UNLV.
