As a high school student taking Cornell courses, you are subject to the same rules and regulations as other students.
In addition, more specific program and/or statutory requirements may apply depending on your age and if you are studying online or on campus.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
Students in fall, winter & spring courses
Before attending fall, winter, or spring courses, you must review the Policies on the Courses for Credit website.
Students in summer courses
Cornell University is a pluralistic community, and we are committed to equality of educational opportunity.
We expect you, as a member of the Precollege Summer Program community, to behave in a responsible manner and to be courteous and respectful to your fellow students and to members of the faculty and staff. Cornell expects you to demonstrate absolute integrity in your academic undertakings.
You should decide to participate in the Precollege Summer Program only if you are committed to maintaining the highest academic and social standards.
Students who violate the Precollege Studies Code of Academic Integrity may face disciplinary actions including dismissal from the program. Students who are dismissed for violations of the Precollege Studies Code of Academic Integrity will be withdrawn from their courses (and therefore will not receive a grade, credit, or an evaluation for work done up until that point) and will not be entitled to a refund. We are sorry to say this has happened.
In addition, Precollege students are also subject to other Cornell University policies and procedures, including the Cornell University Student Code of Conduct and Cornell University Policy 6.4: Prohibited Bias, Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual and Related Misconduct.
Cornell University reserves the right to discontinue the enrollment of any student whose continuance would be, in the sole judgment of the Precollege Studies director, detrimental to themselves, others, or to the Precollege Studies learning environment.
We strongly suggest that students and parents/guardians spend time discussing why a program like ours needs rules of conduct and why students must conform to them, even though some rules may differ from customs at home. Students should consider the rules carefully and be willing to comply.
To understand these expectations, you and your parents or guardians must review
