Welcome to Summer College!

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

We understand that many of you may have concerns about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and its potential impact on the Ithaca College community. Please click here for the latest information specific to Pre-College students and families.


In Ithaca College's residential pre-college summer program, high school students experience college life and college-level courses while living in a safe environment.

The Summer College for High School Students has two program offerings, each with courses designed and reserved expressly for pre-college students.

ONE WEEK SESSION: June 28 - July 3, 2020

THREE WEEK SESSION: July 5 - July 24, 2020

Students love their classes, stay up late, and enjoy trips, picnics, movies, concerts, talent shows, and other events both planned and spontaneous. Most importantly, our summer college alumni report they were better prepared for a successful transition to college. And many students appreciate the opportunity to earn college credit in their academic courses.

Credits earned during the three-week summer college program are accepted at Ithaca College and normally transferable to other colleges. Students who attend the one-week session earn a certificate of completion.

Afternoon Activities

Students select from a variety of optional afternoon activities, including workshops on topics such as the college admission process and writing college application essays; group classes in personal fitness; or hikes in Ithaca College's Natural Lands.

Disability Accommodation

Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodation should contact Student Accessibility Services, and submit a Disability Identification Form.

We ask that requests for accommodations be made as much in advance of the start of the program as possible.
