Start by Choosing the Pathway That Fits You Best

The path you choose for Summer College isn’t your life path. It’s just a way to start thinking about your coursework and to start to identify your people – other students who think like you, who find the same things important to them – maybe forever, or maybe just right now. 

Pathways Lead to Course Selection

You choose a pathway, then select one course dedicated to precollege students that will meet synchronously for five weeks. Courses are scheduled based on one of the following meeting schedules:

  • Mondays through Thursdays 9:30 am – 11:00 am (Eastern Time)  + Friday asynchronous

Meet other precollege students during weekly common hours.

In addition to class meeting times, two common hours are scheduled each week:

  • Mondays and Wednesdays 11:30 am - 12:30 pm (Eastern Time)

Monday common hours are used to discuss topics relevant to life within and beyond the classroom including finding and asking for resources, the college decision process, developing a sense of belonging, diversity and racial equity.

Wednesday common hours will be a chance to have theme-based conversations with other students in the other courses in your pathway, to ask questions of one another and your professors, a chance to build a stronger community. These topics will be developed and announced by your Summer College professors.

Additional Academic Success Strategies and Admissions Workshops will be scheduled throughout the program with topics like getting to college (the college application process, writing college application essays, choosing a major), academic success strategies (time management, communicating with your professor, reading a syllabus), and more.
