Syracuse University Pre-College Programs

Pre-College Starts Here.

Syracuse University Office of Pre-College Programs has been providing high school students with the opportunity to explore college majors and careers in its renowned pre-college programs. Students not only learn what it’s like to be a college student, they make new like-minded friends from around the world and leave the program with more confidence, enthusiasm, and a sense of readiness for college.

On Campus

Students who reside on campus navigate daily life like a college student – they take a college-level course, live in a residence hall, have meals with friends in a dining hall, and participate in social activities, events, and weekend trips. Students build meaningful connections with instructors and classmates in an immersive
and collaborative living and learning environment.


Online students explore majors and pursue academic interests from the comfort of home – or from anywhere life takes them. All online courses have synchronous classes on a weekly basis, ranging from as few as one to as many as four synchronous classes per week. Students can expect to complete up to 10 hours of asynchronous work per week in addition to the classes.


Students in Summer College – Hybrid courses have the best of both On Campus and Online formats with these 6-week courses. Students begin their Hybrid courses with 2- weeks of immersive coursework on campus. They then complete their coursework in the less intensive online format for the remaining 4- weeks from the comfort of your their own home – or wherever life takes them!

Student Testimonials:

“The Pre-College program truly challenged me to become better. It allowed me to interact with the world from a different perspective, preparing me for college life and adulthood. Although It was difficult to leave my mother, the school and students welcomed me with open arms. I adore the culture established within Syracuse University - everyone there truly feels like family.”
