Comprehensive Studies Program

The Comprehensive Studies Program (CSP) is a premier student success program that was established in 1983; its mission is to continuously engage, shape, provide academic guidance for, and retain undergraduate students from diverse populations with outstanding potential for success at the University of Michigan. CSP coordinates and provides student-centered instruction, holistic advising, counseling, student development opportunities, and a supportive learning community to equip our students with the academic, personal, and social tools that lead to academic achievement, retention and graduation. 

CSP incorporates and oversees the University's Summer Bridge Program which assists incoming students with transitioning to the University. CSP students who are admitted into our program come from a variety of backgrounds including being the valedictorian of their graduating class, the first-generation in their families to attend college, historically underrepresented at the University, or have attended smaller high schools. CSP works with an entering class of about 450 students, many of whom remain part of the program throughout their undergraduate experience at Michigan.
