The transition from high school to college is a giant leap….a BRIDGE makes it easier!

The Bridge program for incoming CSU students on the autism spectrum and their families is offered through the Center for Community Partnerships (CCP) in the Department of Occupational Therapy. Facilitated by CCP staff and peer mentors, the three-day transition program will help students acclimate to higher education and campus life while offering:

  • Early residence hall move-in
  • Opportunities to meet new friends and campus staff
  • Personalized tours to locate your classes, dining options, activities, places to study, and resources
  • Information and tips on self-advocacy for your college success
  • Guidance on how to identify and use academic accommodations
  • Connection to ongoing support through the Opportunities for Postsecondary Success program
  • An introduction to Old Town Fort Collins and the Transfort bus system

Bridge 2017 will take place on August 15, 16 and 17. For more information contact Cindy Sharpe by email at Cindy.Sharpe@colostate.edu or call (970) 491-5930. Bridge is made possible through funding provided by the USDOE Office of Postsecondary Education. This program is free of charge; however, Residence Life does require a $60 early move-in fee. This fee covers room and board for 2 early move-in days.
