Emory Summer College for High School Students

Note: International students are not eligible for credit courses, however, they may apply for noncredit courses here.

Emory Summer College is a nonresidential program in which exceptional high school students who have completed their sophomore or junior year may enroll in Emory undergraduate courses and earn college credit.

Credit students are expected to commute (use their own mode of transportation) to campus daily.  Out-of-state students will need to arrange accommodations locally with a friend or family member. Emory University does not provide any residential options.
