Advance into Moravian: Summer Bridge Program

鶹’s Advance into Moravian (AIM) summer bridge program provides first-year students with an “early start” to the expectations of college courses and campus life.

During this three-week residential program, students take a college course for credit and attend academic support seminars, workshops, and other activities designed to aid in their transition to Moravian. This program is offered to students at no cost; we believe in the potential for success of every student we admit and recognize how important this early start can be for many individuals.

This program will run weekly from Sunday afternoon to Thursday afternoon. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday morning the program will not be in session. 

Program Benefits

On top of earning college credit before the fall semester starts, students selected to participate in this program can expect to receive the following benefits:

  • Develop core academic skills that prepare them for college-level coursework and expectations of university faculty
  • Transition to college life through a series of activities and workshops with members of our Moravian community
  • Establish a network of resources, strategies, and personal connections that will enhance their Moravian experience

Who Can Participate

Advance into Moravian is open to select first-year students. The Office of Admission, Academic Excellence, and Center for Inclusive Excellence  teams identify applicants who are a great fit for 鶹 and will benefit from the added support of a summer bridge program in their transition to college. Identified students are invited to apply to participate in the Advance into Moravian program along with their admission to Moravian.

If there are open spaces still available in the summer bridge program ahead of the program's start, students can sign up to join with the permission of the Associate Director for the Center of Inclusive Excellence. You can start that process with your admission counselor. The Associate Director for the Center of Inclusive Excellence will determine in consultation with you, your family, and your admission counselor if Advance into Moravian is a good fit for you.

If you are someone who is interested in participating in this program we ask that you contact the programs Co-Directors Alvert Hernandez, Assistant Dean for Inclusive Excellence (, and Chris Hassay, Associate Director of the Center for Inclusive Excellence (
