Bridge to Creighton
The Bridge to Creighton is a dynamic program designed for undergraduate students with high academic potential who would benefit from additional advanced-level English language support.
The Bridge program is not simply an ESL program; it enables eligible students to earn up to 6 credits at Creighton University while polishing vital academic skills needed for success at a top-ranked university.
In the Bridge semester, highly-qualified instructors in the Intensive English Language Institute will instruct students in essential critical reading strategies, academic vocabulary, high level English grammar, presentation and oral communication skills, and note-taking. A 3-credit composition course will provide students with practice and techniques for the writing projects found in Creighton classes. A 2-credit academic success course will orient students to many services available on Creighton's campus. During or immediately following the Bridge semester, students are also connected with a faculty advisor and a small cohort of peers to examine and experience key elements of Creighton University life together (an additional 0.5-1 credit, depending on the program of study).
The next semester students take full credit courses, but the IELI instructors will continue to serve as a resource for students, collaborating with the students' other Creighton professors to ensure student success.
To qualify for admission to the Bridge to Creighton, you must have a TOEFL of at least 68 (IELTS 6.0) and fulfill all of the other application and admission requirements of Creighton university undergraduate programs.
