Cornell University


  1. Your high school transcript, including all completed years of high school,

  2. Your current grade report, including the most current available grades, and

  3. Your most recent standardized test scores, if available: PSAT, SAT, ACT, or, if you're an international student, all pages of your TOEFL or IELTS report. Your application will not be considered complete and reviewed for an admissions decision if we do not receive all pages of the TOEFL or IELTS report.


1.Three-week program

Students who enroll in three-week programs focus intensely on one course for credit (see below) and explore related careers. You can expect to be in class in the morning and afternoon and, in some cases, in the evening.

Increasingly, students are combining:

  • a three-week program from Session 1 (June 23–July 14) with

  • a three-week program from Session 2 (July 15–August 4)

to create a six-week dual program.

​2. Six-week program

The six week program is similar to the three week program but with more depth and intensity. Here are some tips that Cornell University recommends the students to read.

  1. We suggest you consider enrolling in a First-Year Writing Seminar (English 1131 or English 1132) to build your college writing skills.

  2. Take care when choosing science, math, and computer science courses, which require rapid assimilation of difficult concepts. Such courses should not be chosen without carefully weighing the amount of work and the dedication they'll require. 

  3. If your schedule permits, we encourage you to visit an additional course for a day or two.

Selection Process:

Summer College does not interview prospective students. Instead, we get to know you through your application statements and letter(s) of recommendation. We also do not require that a student earn a specific GPA. We look at the student's entire application when making the admissions decision.

International students please note:

If you do not currently attend a high school where the official language and entire curriculum is taught in English, Summer College requires you to have on of the following minimum standardized test scores:


  1. a minimum TOEFL score of 100 or higher on the Internet-based test

  2. a minimum IELTS score of 7 or higher

  3. SAT Evidenced-based reading and writing scores of 650 or higher.

If you currently attend a high school where the official language and entire curriculum is taught in English, you do not need to meet this requirement.

As an international student, if your score is lower, you may only apply to College Success, the Reading Lab, and Academic Writing. If you have not taken the TOEFL or IELTS, contact the nearest test center to register for a test.
