Supporting Your Success

Preparing to Study Science

There are several ways we help ease your transition to a rigorous course of study in the sciences. Even before you arrive on campus, you can access a variety of science review resources on a Web site for enrolled students, including math self-assessment tools, math practice problems, and study hints and tips from our science faculty members.

Before classes begin, you can participate in an optional math review session in the summer before the general chemistry course begins and again in the fall before the physics course begins.  These sessions are taught by a member of our math faculty and are designed specifically for postbac students.

Getting Settled

Once admitted to our program, we’ll make it easy for you to find housing in the many apartment complexes and other rental properties within walking distance of the College, which offer convenient access to everything you might need, from shops to the train station. Enrolled students may access a comprehensive housing section on our website that provides details on all the housing options in the area. You may also access an interactive website to get in touch with your classmates and find students to share your housing, if you are interested in roommates. In addition, a current postbac student who has gone through the housing search process serves as the housing coordinator for our program. They will assist you with your housing search and answer any questions you may have about relocating to Bryn Mawr to start the postbac program.
