Northwestern University: College Prep Program

One of the best ways for teens to prepare for college is to get a taste of college life and academics. Take this opportunity to explore different subjects or get a head start on the major of your dreams. Northwestern University's College Prep Program summer camp offers students the opportunity to earn college credit in Summer Session undergraduate courses. Experience the rigor and challenge of Northwestern University — the expectations are high, the rewards are long-lasting.

More than 300 Northwestern courses in virtually every academic discipline are open to you...

  • Immerse yourself in Arabic, Chinese, or Italian — and learn what filmmaker Federico Fellini meant when he said that "a different language is a different vision of life."
  • Find yourself discussing the science of climate change, analyzing the psychology of personality or researching the principles of genetics and evolution.
  • Explore a future major in chemistry or history or experiment with something you may not have tried before, like political science or philosophy.
  • Courses are flexibly scheduled, ranging from three-week intensive courses in the sciences or languages, and four to eight weeks for most other offerings. You must receive permission from the Summer Session director to enroll in three-week intensive science courses. Also, students may be able to enroll in upper-level courses, subject to prerequisites and permission.

As a College Prep teen student, you can enroll in undergraduate courses offered in Northwestern University's Summer Session. The course credit you earn can be transferred to undergraduate programs at many other universities. Your grades will be available on an official Northwestern transcript — a strong beginning to your academic career.
