Additional Information Summer Preview provides an opportunity for students finishing 8th and 9th grade to see what a college-level course is like, explore an academic interest in-depth, or investigate a subject they are curious about. Summer Preview students enroll in one, non-credit seminar. Students also benefit from a college workshop that gets them thinking about what they can do in high school to maximize the effectiveness of their college applications. This program is non-residential.
