As of June 14, 2021, Session 3 (July 26 - August 6) of Pre-College Workshops is SOLD OUT. Sessions 1 (June 28 - July 9) and 2 (July 12 - July 23) are still open. If you complete the enrollment form for Session 3 on or after June 14, you will be given the option to transfer into Session 1 or Session 2, or stay on a wait list for Session 3. If you join the wait list, your enrollment will not be processed unless a space opens up. If a space does not open up, your $100 deposit will be refunded.

Learn with others online

Your program will be a mix of live ("synchronous") sessions with your instructors, and time to work on your own or in a small group ("asynchronous"). Every workshop is designed to be as interactive as possible. Your non-credit workshops are designed to introduce you to the key concepts of various academic fields through project-based learning, often through work in small groups.

Participation in this program requires access to a device (computer or tablet) that is connected to reliable, high-speed internet. While participation on a smartphone is possible, the ability to interact with others will be more limited and is thus not recommended.
