Benefits of the Bridge Program in Santa Maria:

  • A Quality Education. The greatest guarantee we offer is quality. Antioch University is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, highly- respected, with experience in providing legendary academic programs and innovative learning opportunities. We pride ourselves on engaging learning environments – with no more than 25 students in a class, personalized attention from our faculty, and reflective evaluation of students’ coursework, students will have the support to achieve their dreams.
  • It is cost-effective and time-efficient. Students save a substantial amount of money by completing as many as 80 units at a community college and then paying AUSB fees for the last 40 (60 quarter) units.
  • Support through the transfer process. AHC’s University Transfer Center and AUSB’s Office of Admissions work collaboratively to ensure that students’ interests, needs, and concerns are addressed. We encourage you to meet with either a University Transfer Center Counselor or AUSB Admission Advisor to learn more about how the Bridge Program could best serve you, and to devise a meaningful academic plan for transfer.
  • No Math Requirements. Math courses are not required for transfer to AUSB. AUSB enables students to gain competency in mathematics as it is applied in everyday work and social/behavioral sciences, through its own statistics course. Already completed Statistics at AHC? You can take an elective course in lieu of AUSB’s core statistics course.
