70+ online courses in 2021! For more than 60 years, Syracuse University has been providing exceptional and transformative pre-college experiences to high school students from around the world. Students explore potential majors and pursue academic interests from the comfort of home - or from anywhere life takes them.
Although each Summer College - Online course is unique, if you are enrolled in a 3-week course you can expect to be in a virtual class setting part of each weekday. These live synch classes are with your classmates, professor, and sometimes one or more teaching assistants (TAs) or instructional assistants (IAs). Depending on the course, there may be lectures, guest presentations, discussions, in-class activities, breakout rooms, and small group work. When not in class, you will complete asynch assignments, which may include pre-recorded lectures and other videos, readings, and individual and group projects.
All Summer College - Online students are assigned a Syracuse University undergrad who will serve serve as their Virtual Community Connector. VCCs will help you navigate though your online pre-college experience and support you along the way. Virtual college campus activities give you the opportunity to meet other students, learn new things, relax and have fun!
After successfully completing a course, you will earn a Certificate of Completion from Syracuse University and will have the option to purchase a credit or noncredit transcript.
