Then you can earn three hours of college credit this year by fulfilling your Bridge Builder® requirements.
Through Christian Brothers University’s partnership with Bridge Builders® you are afforded the opportunity to receive college credit simply by being a member of the Bridge Builder® Collaborate Program and completing the requirements. This opportunity is for all rising junior and senior Bridge Builders® Collaborate members who meet CBU’s requirements and apply for the CBU Dual Enrollment Program. This means you could start college with up to six college credits (3 credits per academic year).
Bridge Builders® is a year-round leadership training program to advance justice in the mid-south. Their mission is to develop among students a group of future leaders who can lay aside individual, social, economic, and cultural differences and work for the benefit of all. You can learn more about Bridge Builders® and apply to their program on the BRIDGES website.
Only complete applications will be reviewed for eligibility. Incomplete applications, including those missing signatures, official transcripts, tuition/fee, or requested information will not be processed. The student will be notified of the missing items. It is the student's responsibility to request transcripts, scores, and signatures from the appropriate schools or offices.
All paperwork can be sent to:
Dual Enrollment, Box 341
Christian Brothers University
650 East Parkway South
Memphis, TN 38104
All items must be post marked on or before October 1.
Please note that most September ACT scores will not get here by the October 1 deadline and therefore they cannot be used for admissions.
For eligible students the TSAC Dual Enrollment Grant pays the $300.00 tuition fee. Most Tennessee residents will qualify regardless of income. You can view the eligibility requirements on the TSAC website.
Please note that eligibility for the Bridge Builders® Collaborate Program does not guarantee eligibility or acceptance into the CBU Dual Enrollment Program. You will be notified in late October or early November of your Dual Enrollment application status.
You do not have any additional meeting requirements other than those prescribed by Bridge Builders®. There are no textbooks, no homework, and no additional meetings at CBU.
