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 .

There is no additional Summer Academy application. However, students must be registered in one of the Seahawk Summer Academy cohorts or pair as they are listed on this website by the first day of class.

Eligible students will only receive the 4-credit Summer Academy scholarship if they are enrolled into our specific Summer Academy courses by the first day of class. Because these courses are learning community set-up as cohorts, students cannot add courses from different cohorts, but must enroll into the 2 courses of the same cohort.

The College uses Financial Aid office to award the 4-credit Summer Academy scholarships to eligible students.

Eligible students do not need to be FAFSA eligible to be awarded the scholarship. However, we highly recommend all Summer Academy students  have a complete FAFSA Application on file for the current and following year, cleared of all red flags.

Eligible students must also be fully admitted into the college, cleared to register for classes, and meet Florida Residency for tuition purposes. Please visit our home page to review all the 4-credit Summer Academy tuition scholarship eligibility requirements.

We also recommend completing the Broward College Scholarship application for other scholarship opportunities. Visit the Financial Aid office webpage for more information.

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.

Yes, the Summer Academy courses run only over session 3 in the summer term. Session 3 courses typically start in June. Remember, classes are available on all 3 campuses (North, South and Central Campuses).
