The Bridges Common Learning Experience is designed to enhance and compliment your degree program. To prepare you for a successful experience at Duquesne, we invite you to the Bridges On-ramp.

The On-ramp is a zero-credit, asynchronous online course designed for undergraduate students who are new to Duquesne. It consists of three modules and can be completed in an hour or less. The course will automatically be added to your Duquesne Blackboard courses list and available each July.
