Credit-bearing online 8-week courses are open to high school students during the academic year. Semester-based Syracuse University courses in the fall and spring are typically 15 weeks in length. The 8-week online courses are therefore accelerated and more time-intensive.
Students participate in one weekly 90-minute synchronous (live) session with the course instructor. Students will also have 8-10 hours of asynchronous work per week, which may include watching videos, reading, and completing assignments. These courses consist of high school students and undergraduate students.
~Grade Level: Students must be of current junior or senior status or a 2022 high school graduate.
~GPA: Students applying to Accelerated Semester Online are expected to be in good academic standing with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale).
