Dual Programs

Dates: June 23-August 4, 2018 (6 weeks)
Credits: 6 credits
Eligibility: current sophomores, juniors, seniors
(see eligibility requirements)


Can't choose just one program, major, and/or career? You don't have to!

Depending upon your eligibility, you can combine a three-week program from Session 1 with a three-week program from Session 2 for your own six-week "dual program." (See options below.)

Note: You may also combine the non-credit program Fabricating the Future: Robotics and Programming with a three-week program from Session 2 to create a five-week dual program (June 30–August 4).

"It was a really good experience because it gave me the opportunity to focus on each course individually," says CUSC alum Lindsay Ferstandig. "Having the switch in the middle totally refreshed me, so I stayed interested and excited to learn the entire time."

Student experiences

"Summer College at Cornell University was an intense academic experience, but at the same time an exhilarating one. Interacting with students from around the country and world and with excellent faculty on one of the most picturesque campuses I have ever seen was an experience I will never forget. I gained an appreciation of the degree of work and study that will be required in college. I was also pleasantly surprised at the amount of personal interaction between the students and the faculty. " — William Cranford, 2015

"The best experience of my life.... I couldn't have asked for a better summer!" — Tana Palomino, 2015
