COM Summer Bridge



The Summer Bridge program is an intensive three-week college preparatory program for recent high school graduates offering a combined focus on math and English skill-building, college success skills, and group bonding. June and July sessions will be offered, with live Zoom and non-Zoom options.  Synchronous classes will meet from Monday—Thursday, 10:30 am to Noon.

We will also be offering an ESL option for students that want additional English language support over the Summer before they start at COM.


During the program students will:

  • Earn one transferable unit
  • Learn about college
  • Find out how to transfer to a four-year institution
  • Meet other new students
  • Have fun!

Note: If you have already taken a COM class, you do not need to attend another orientation session.

High school students can enroll in college classes and pay no enrollment fee* for up to 11 units—a savings of $506 per semester! This saves not only money but also time, by meeting both high school credit requirements and earning transferable college credit at the same time. Take advantage of this valuable offer to explore areas of interest, build college confidence, and earn transferable credits.

Summer Career Academies and Career Education Courses

No prerequisites! All courses are online and most offer college credit.

In partnership with the Marin County Office of Education, COM Career Education offers a broad selection of career exploration courses for both high school students each summer. Courses are condensed, running from 2-3 weeks in June and July.  Most classes offer college credit. This is a great way for students to gain some college experience while exploring industries and occupations. Click here to see a list of recommended career classes for high school students.


COMPASS (College of Marin Promoting and Supporting Success) is COM’s primary tool in its efforts to end educational inequity in Marin County and is the result of two years of planning with the Marin County Office of Education, every high school in the county, and several community-based partners. It is a partnership between students, families, high schools, and College of Marin, which begins in the 9th grade. The 2015-16 academic year saw the initial launch of the COMPASS program in both Terra Linda and San Marin high schools with additional cohorts added at San Rafael, Novato, and Tamalpais sites.

Participating students agree to fulfill certain responsibilities:

  • Enrollment in COUN 115/125 in 9th Grade
  • Participation in supplemental activities
  • Enrollment in specific high school courses based on assessments and the creation of tailored high school and college educational plans
  • Financial planning and college application process
  • Enrollment in additional COM courses throughout the high school career

Visit COMPASS website to learn more.

Due to the stay-at-home order, Outreach is providing presentations from our counselor and transfer coordinator along with their contact information. We invite you to reach out with any questions you have. Thank you for your interest in our transfer programs.
