Experience college life at Northwestern University this summer in the College Prep Program. High school sophomores and juniors can take undergraduate courses for college credit, or enroll in a two-week IN FOCUS seminar in a special topic area.
Northwestern's College Prep Program is a wonderful way to gain insight into the college life. If you choose to take classes for college credit, you will not be disappointed in the array of undergraduate courses offered. These classes come with high expectations, commitment, and involvement, as they are taught by our Northwestern college professors. They look forward to sharing knowledge and space with you in classes that you are passionate about!
If you choose to enroll in Northwestern's College Prep Program, you will be able to participate in IN FOCUS Seminars. These seminar-style courses are focused on relevant issues. Faculty will lead the seminar through discussion, readings and study, enabling a rich learning experience for interested students. These seminars are not for college credit and will therefore require less time commitment than the other coureses. However, these seminars will still appear on your transcript.
