If I am not Native American, can I still participate in these programs?

Yes. Students of any race or ethnicity are welcome to apply and participate. These programs are designed to be particularly relevant and engaging for Native American students, but will likely be beneficial to many others as well.

Do I have to stay in the dorms to be in the Summer Bridge Program?

We require that students stay in the dorms during the Summer Bridge Program in order to insure that students have abundant opportunities to connect with other participants, mentors, and program staff. However, if it is absolutely necessary that you stay in another location, program staff will discuss alternative arrangements on a case by case basis.

If I am not 18 yet, can I still apply for the Launch summer programs?

You must be 18 years of age by the first day of the program in order to participate in the Summer Bridge Program. This is necessary because students reside in dorms during the program.

Is child care available during summer programs?

No. San Juan College does not provide child care. San Juan College and many other organizations do offer summer programming for children, some of which may overlap with Launch summer program schedules.
