Get a head start on college by applying now for Ignite 21, a week-long Summer Bridge Program happening this summer at Northeast State Community College. The program is designed for recent high school graduates entering Northeast State this fall.

Two sessions are scheduled to accommodate summer schedules. The first is set for 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Northeast State at Johnson City campus, 101 E. Market Street. The second session happens 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. July 8-12 at the Kingsport Center for Higher Education, 300 W. Market Street. There is no registration fee or admission cost to students accepted into the program. Registration forms must be received no later than one week prior to the first day of each session. The Ignite 21 registration form can be accessed online at https://www.northeaststate.edu/Calendar-and-Events/Ignite-21/.

IGNITE 21, supported by a Tennessee Board of Regents Student Engagement, Retention and Success Grant, is designed to promote first-year college success for underrepresented minority students. Program faculty will share academic expectations and tips on how students can successfully transition from high school to college with topics ranging from study skills to accessing campus resources.

By introducing students to academic and student services, the summer bridge program will enhance student engagement, retention, and success. To register or learn more, call (423) 354-5304/(423) 354-5206 or email diversity@northeaststate.edu.
