Fall Bridge Options: Core and Seminar

Students enrolling in Fall Bridge courses choose between two options. An on-line selection process will help you choose between the options that best fit your academic strengths, confidence in college research, reading, and expository writing, and past experiences in writing/reading classes. You will enroll in your selected Fall Bridge courses before June Orientation and work with an advisor to register for additional fall courses when you visit campus during Orientation.  

Though all UW students will complete the following general education classes, Fall Bridge courses provide more connections through engaging themes, smaller classes, and stronger interactions with peer leaders and instructors.
