Begin your transition to college right.

The Medaille College Brush-Up Bridge Program is an opportunity for students to brush up on their reading, writing, and math skills in order to re-take the placement exam and possibly place into higher level classes their first semester.

How do I know the Brush-Up Bridge is right for me?

The Brush-Up Bridge is a risk-free opportunity for all students who place into RDG125, ENG100, and/or MAT100 to work on their skills and re-take the placement exam. 

All students will receive instruction and support in reading, writing, and math from Academic Specialists.

After attending workshops and completing activities, students will retest in these areas.  Students can place into higher level classes.

Students who do not place into higher level classes will have gained college experience and important skills that will prepare them for their first semester at Medaille.

What will I have to do at the Brush-Up Bridge?

  1. Take a diagnostic version of the placement test
  2. Attend an orientation of the program
  3. Participate in four workshops that cover the skills you want to improve 
  4. Complete activities on MyFoundationsLab, a program designed to help improve your skills
  5. Retake the placement exam

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
