Intensive English Program

Bridgepathways at CMU

Colorado Mesa University has partnered with Bridge Education Group® to offer an on-campus, intensive English program to prepare academically qualified students for full admission to CMU. As a student in the BridgePathways® program, you'll quickly learn from the communicative and student-centered approach and feel well prepared to succeed in one of more than 70 competitive degree programs at CMU. BridgePathways® students can gain conditional admission to CMU, either before arriving or as a current student, if all admission requirements except English proficiency are met. While in the program, students may live on-campus and enjoy full access to student amenities and activities, from the dining hall to the recreation center and everything in between.
