Summer Session Courses

Any student planning to take on or off courses for credit over the summer session must complete the appropriate forms for approval well before summer session begins.

At Cornell, up to 4 credits may be taken in the three-week session, up to 9 in the six-week session, and up to 12 in the eight-week session. The total may not exceed 15 credits.

Further information and forms are available in the Office of Student Services, 180 Statler Hall. Forms are also available online at

Note: Credit is given only for courses taken at four-year, accredited institutions, and courses must be passed with a grade of “C” or above.
