For more than 60 years Syracuse University’s Office of Pre-College Programs has been giving high school students the opportunity to explore potential college majors and careers in its renowned pre-college programs. Students not only learn about what it’s like to be a college student, they leave the program with more confidence, enthusiasm and a sense of being ready for college. Students can choose from over 100 courses in one of our four pre-college programs:
Immerse yourself in the full college experience: take a college-level course, live in a residence hall, have meals with friends in a dining hall, and participate in field trips, college tours, and activities on campus.
Explore college life before stepping foot on campus! High school students can enroll in a college-level course, pursue their academic interests, and meet like-minded students in daily virtual events and activities.
Expand your knowledge in a 6-week hybrid course. Live on the Syracuse University campus for two-weeks and then complete the final four weeks of your course online from the comfort of your own home – or wherever life takes you!
Applications for Summer College – Hybrid are now closed.
Explore course options in one of Syracuse University’s homes on the west or east coasts! The Office of Pre-College Programs has expanded to several of Syracuse University’s academic centers with Summer College – On Location in New York City, NY or Los Angeles, CA! Commuter students, only.
Applications for Summer College – On Location are now closed.
