The School of Continuing Education (SCE) is working with Cornell leadership to monitor the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and help ensure the health and well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and community. We are dedicated to helping you continue your education during this difficult time.

Given the uncertainties of this rapidly evolving situation, we encourage you to visit the Cornell coronavirus website regularly for updates, information, and resources for students.

All Cornell Summer Session online courses will proceed as scheduled. We will be adding online courses to the summer roster throughout the spring.

On-campus classes slated to begin prior to July 12 are cancelled or will be converted to online offerings. We will be in touch with registered students about their options as soon as possible and as we determine which courses will be cancelled and which offered online.

The university hopes to make a decision about on-campus classes scheduled for after July 12 (see summer 3-week 3 offerings) once the pandemic situation becomes clearer.

As a summer student, you may choose from dozens of courses and earn up to fifteen credits during the entire summer period (May-August).

Note about immigration status: If you are an international student currently studying at Cornell or another U.S. college or university, and plan to return to your current school in the fall, you do not need to transfer your SEVIS record to study at Cornell this summer. (For questions about visas, see International Services in Cornell's Office for Global Learning.)
