    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.
