What is Early Bird?

Early Bird is a registration program designed to ensure high school seniors make a smooth transition into the Brookdale community. The Office of Admissions works closely with local high schools to make information, applications, and early placement testing available to students. Interested students should ask their guidance office about Early Bird participation.

Early Bird itself occurs in May or early June. Students are invited to participate virtually (typically the same day as the rest of their high school classmates) in the Early Bird Program. Those attending Early Bird sessions are guaranteed to secure the required program courses they need for their first Fall semester.
