Get a head start on college by earning credits from Cornell online

As a high school student, you may request approval to take online Cornell courses during our Summer, Fall, and/or Winter Session.

You can choose from hundreds of regular university courses, work with a Cornell faculty member, study alongside undergraduate students, and improve your college study skills. It's a great chance to earn college credits without leaving home.

Most online courses are delivered via the web-based learning system Canvas. 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.
