Summer College (Six-week credit) Orientation Information

Summer College students are enrolled in a credit course with plans to commute to Emory's campus daily.  The schedule above pertains to non-credit students only.  Mandatory orientation for six-week students is typically held in the Pre-College Program office within the first few days after each session begins.  Communications will be emailed directly to all students enrolled in credit courses in order to schedule a specific orientation date and time.
