Registration open for Summer Session online classes

Students are invited to register now for Cornell’s Summer Session, which will be held entirely online this year.

Students can earn up to 15 credits by taking regular Cornell courses taught online by university faculty. Courses are offered in three-, six- and eight-week sessions between June 1 and Aug. 3.

In addition to the regular roster of online courses offered each year by the School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions (SCE), courses traditionally held on or off campus during the summer have been converted to online programs.

These special online offerings include the Cornell Global Prelaw Program, taught by Cornell University Law School faculty Elizabeth Anker, Mitchel Lasser, Brian Richardson, and Nelson Tebbe; and Practicing Medicine: Health Care Culture and Careers, a three-credit course focusing on COVID-19’s impact on health care, taught by Sam Beck, senior lecturer in the College of Human Ecology.

Other offerings include courses in anthropology, architecture, astronomy, biology, business, chemistry, communication, computer science, design, economics, engineering, English, government, hotel administration, law, mathematics, music, nutritional science, physics, psychology, statistics, technology and veterinary medicine. Courses will be added throughout the spring; students are encouraged to check the Summer Session online course roster frequently.
