Summer School

Summer School at Emory is the perfect opportunity to get ahead and prepare for the next step in your academic career. Many undergraduates use the summer to complete GERs, pre-professional or major requirements, explore a course in an area of interest or possible major, or prepare for study abroad.

During the summer, Oxford and Emory students' academic experience is enhanced by the presence of visiting students from other colleges and universities.

Summer 2024

Enrollment is now open.
