FAQs - General

​1. Is there a specific deadline for the application or registration?

The Seahawk Summer Academy (also called summer bridge) does not have a separate application process. Students need to complete successfully the Broward College Admission processes and be cleared of all holds. The specific Seahawk Summer Academy classes are available and posted on this website. Students will follow  the same deadline they will follow for any other BC Course. We recommend that students ensure they have all required documentations on file by June 21st to ensure they are able to register for classes starting on June 26th of 2019.

2. Is there a specific additional application or simply just register for the courses?

Simply register for the seahawk summer academy courses accessible by clicking on the "Seahawk Summer Academy Class Schedule" link on the left pane.

3.Do Students need to have clearance through Financial Aid? Or only have applied with a FASFA on file to receive the Scholarship?

The College uses Financial Aid office to award the 4-credit Summer Academy scholarships. Students will not need to have financial aid clearance at the federal level. However, they will need to be admitted into the college just like any other student and meet the eligibility criteria listed on our home page. We recommend that all students fill out a Broward College financial aid scholarship application if they want to be considered for other scholarship opportunities. Visit our home page for more details

 4. Do students need to have their High School Transcripts on file to participate in the Summer Academy?

Students are responsible to ensure that  Broward College receive their official High School transcripts by the first day of classes (Session 3). It is very important for the 4-credit scholarship recipients. Since the courses run over Summer-Session 3, the turnaround time can be very close to their high school graduation. In that case, we recommend that enrolled students communicate often with their academic advisor to ensure that the College receive their transcripts as soon as possible to retain their scholarship awards.


5. Are the Seahawk Summer Academy classes only available for Session 3? 

Yes, Session 3 and classes are available on all 3 campuses (North, South and Central Campuses).


6. How will this affect students in the AS Programs (limited electives)? Are they able to participate?

Anticipating this challenge we made sure to select courses that our students will need (see our course schedule page) 

 7. How will students be notified that they have clearance to join the Seahawk Summer Academy?

 The office of recruitment usually send out notifications to prospective high school students and holds various initiatives for interested students. 

Once students are admitted and enrolled, the Office of Student Achievement Initiatives monitors registrations into the listed Summer Academy courses to ensure students are register for both courses within a cohort. Once registered, our office will contact the students to welcome them to the summer bridge and provide them with information regarding orientations, field trips, closing award ceremony R.S.V. P. etc.
