Applications open for Emory Pre-College Program

Emory Report | Jan. 12, 2016

Emory’s Pre-College Program, a summer academic program available to high school students who are currently sophomores and juniors, is now accepting applications for summer 2016 courses.

The program is designed to offer high school students an opportunity to preview academic and residential life at a top-ranked liberal arts research university, from participating in campus life to taking part in challenging, college-level classes.

Students may enroll in two-week noncredit courses, three-week noncredit institutes, or earn transferable college credit through six-week courses taught by Emory faculty members.

The program also allows high school students to stay in Emory residence halls, meet other students from across the United States and around the world, and participate in a variety of programs, activities and excursions intended to help prepare them for college life.

  • Two-week non-credit courses touch on a variety of disciplines, with three sessions that feature classes ranging from law and litigation, sports medicine and screenwriting to the business of art, the biology of cancer and the psychology of creativity, among many offerings.
  • Six-week for-credit courses permit pre-college students to enroll alongside Emory undergraduates in more than 50 courses offered over two sessions. Classes range from courses in bioethics, politics, psychology, mathematics, biology and bioethics, business, economics, dance, film, religion, language studies.
  • Three-week institutes run from July 3 to July 23, offering two courses of study: an Infectious Disease Institute, which includes hands-on work in a human pathogens laboratory; and the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) Prep Institute, a full-immersion language program that reviews the basic language skills tested on the TOEFL.

Although applications are due no later than May 1, students who submit completed applications and supporting documents by Feb. 1 will qualify to win an application fee waiver, which will be awarded to five students.

Limited financial aid is available; applications are due April 1.
