W&M Bridge Program

The purpose of the W&M Bridge Program is to provide incoming neurodivergent students, both freshman and transfers, the opportunity to acclimate themselves to William & Mary.  Neurodiversity refers to the diversity of brains and minds, including autism, Tourette Syndrome, epilepsy, seizure disorder, ADHD, etc. At William & Mary, we seek to improve the college experiences of neurodivergent students. W&M Bridge Program students will have the chance to meet and socialize with other neurodivergent students and will be introduced to campus resources during this weekend-long, overnight event. Please note that all costs (room/board, food, and other program fees) are covered by William & Mary. Participants are responsible for their transportation to and from campus.  

The 2020 Neurodiversity Summer Bridge Program will be online only in 2020 due to social distancing recommendations. The online program will occur on Saturday, July 25, 2020.
