Volunteer Bridge

The Volunteer Bridge LLC is a unique collaboration with Pellissippi State Community College and the University of Tennessee where first-year students live on UT’s campus and take their classes at the Community College in preparation to transfer to UT their sophomore year.

While developing academic aptitude at the community college, many Volunteer Bridge students build an on-campus community by participating in the LLC.  The Volunteer Bridge LLC encourages a connection with the University through campus-based activities, mentoring, and more.  The LLC also provides students an opportunity to grow academically and prepare for the rigorous coursework at UT by providing academic coaching sessions, program-specific tutoring, and nightly study halls.  The LLC is an integral part of the Volunteer Bridge Program and serves as a cornerstone of support for students transitioning from the Community College to the University.

More information about the Volunteer Bridge program can be found on the Volunteer Bridge Program website.

Community Requirements

The Volunteer Bridge Program is by invitation only.  Eligibility is established by the UT Office of Admissions.  Participants are strongly encouraged to live on-campus in the LLC, though it is not required.
