Getting started

To start planning your Summer College experience, follow these steps:

  1. Review our programs
    Check program descriptions for eligibility, dates, credits, and application deadlines.
  2. Apply
    • To get a head start on the application process, start thinking about your application statements.
    • Find out which school officials you'll need to contact to obtain your official high school transcript and grade report.
    • Consider which teachers or guidance counselors you would like to ask for a recommendation (and how much lead time they'll need to complete your request).
    • If you are an international student, be sure to start the visa process as soon as possible.
