Earn Cornell credits online this summer or winter

Need a flexible schedule? Have a full-time job? Can't get to campus this summer? Through online learning you can choose from dozens of regular Cornell courses, study with university faculty, and earn credits from anywhere with an internet connection.

Most online courses are delivered via the web-based learning system Canvas. You'll complete your assignments within a scheduled time frame, but some courses may offer you the option of getting a head start on your classwork. Generally, you'll interact with the instructor and other students via email, discussion boards, interactive chat rooms, video conferences, and/or phone.

The grades and credits you earn will be recorded on an official Cornell transcript and are generally transferable toward a degree at Cornell or elsewhere—but always check with your school or institution.

For additional Cornell online offerings, including MOOCs, webinars, and certificate programs, see Cornell Online and eCornell.
