Summer study provides opportunities to boost your GPA and stay on track for graduation or prepare to enjoy a semester abroad. Shorter sessions allow you to earn credits before your summer job even starts.

Transfer students and those who attend other colleges during the regular semesters are welcome to attend Syracuse Summer Sessions. Academic options for visiting students include on-campus and online courses as well as study abroad programs. Be sure to check with your home college to be sure your transfer credits will be accepted.
