This 6-week academic program allows high school students to study, explore career interests and earn college credit.
Summer College offers a broad range of courses, which represent the various colleges and schools at Syracuse University.
Students move into the residence hall on Sunday, June 30. Classes formally start on Monday, July 1. The last day of classes is Friday, August 9.
All courses are college-level, credit-bearing courses. Students earn up to seven college credits. Programs and courses are offered in many areas of study and in two enrollment types: programs/courses that are exclusive to Summer College students and programs/courses that are open to both Summer College students and SU students. Students are enrolled in two courses, the exception being Architecture, due to the number of studio hours.
Summer College offers a 3-week non-credit session in Acting & Musical Theater that enables students to gain college level exposure to the theater arts, develop more confidence in preparation for their college auditions, and work toward an end-of-program exhibition of student work.

Summer College provides 2-week options that enable students to gain many of the benefits of the 6-week experience in a shorter format. All programs work with University faculty and instructors and have an intensive schedule in each area of study. Most programs are noncredit.
