In this paper, we discuss the statistical analysis of the Bridge to Bulldogs program. The Bridge to Bulldogs program provides prospective students, who do not meet all of the admission requirements, an alternate route of admission to Louisiana Tech University. The program is offered over two consecutive quarters, either summer/fall or fall/winter. During the program, students focus on building their math skills through tutoring and special advising. We compare the Bridge students to other first-time freshman in relation to scores in Freshman level math classes. We also compare composite and Math ACT scores. Finally, we perform a financial analysis, including retention rates, to determine if the Bridge to Bulldogs program is financially beneficial to the university.
