FAQs

The Seahawk Summer Academy (also referred to as 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 Summer Session 3 classes .
