Summer College at Syracuse University is an excellent opportunity to learn more about a particular academic area and experience life on a college campus. Participating in our program as an engaged and active high school student helps prepare students who are interested in making that transition from high school to college.  We offer both credit and noncredit program options while maintain college rigor across programs.

Move-in for residential students is the Saturday before their program from 1pm-5pm.

All students are required to attend mandatory orientation beginning Saturday at 5:30pm (dinner included) through 9pm and all day Sunday.  Detailed schedules will be provided.

Commuter students will have modified orientation schedules which will be provided ahead of time.
