About Syracuse University Summer College:
Syracuse University’s Summer College for High School Students gives students an amazing opportunity not only to explore their artistic, intellectual, and professional passions, but also to experience college life. With both credit and noncredit offerings lasting from two through six weeks, our programs represent the rich diversity of fields that span the University’s schools and colleges. Summer College students become part of a dynamic community of equally dedicated students from—on average—30 US States and 15 countries. They navigate daily life in a residence hall and participate in on-campus programs and events; have full access to campus resources, including recreational facilities, tennis courts, sports fields, and swimming pools; see the sights on trips to local cultural attractions, amusement parks, and Niagara Falls; and prepare for college through workshops and tours of local universities. Syracuse University Summer College will truly provide you with the summer of a lifetime.
