Tips for selecting a class
- All classes are regular Cornell undergraduate courses. These courses are fast-paced and more difficult than high school or AP classes, so come prepared for a challenge. High school students are evaluated by the same academic standards and procedures as undergraduate students.
- Be sure that you are eligible and meet the prerequisites for your course. We will contact you if, after reviewing your request to enroll, we have any concerns about your qualifications for taking a selected course.
- If you wish to take a summer or winter class, please remember that the course content is equivalent to that of courses offered during Cornell's 15-week fall or spring semesters. Consequently, you'll need to maintain an accelerated pace throughout.
For example, if you take one three-credit, six-week class, you should plan to spend approximately 1.5 hours in class and up to three hours doing homework each day. If you take two three-credit, six-week classes, you should plan to spend approximately three hours in class and up to six hours doing homework each day.
