Summer Bridge Program
Nearly a third of the TLCs take part in the Summer Bridge Program, which begins two weeks before the semester begins in August.
Every TLC includes a first-year seminar. Upon entering IUPUI, all incoming students with less than 17 credits are required to enroll in a first-year seminar, whether it is through their individual schools or through University College. Each first-year seminar has an instructional team led by a faculty member, an advisor, a student mentor, and a librarian, which allows incoming students to have the support they need to begin their college career.
