Summer Preview: Calendar & What to Expect

As announced by the president and provost on Tuesday, April 7, Boston University has cancelled on-campus programming for Summer 2020. Summer Preview’s residential nature and focus on hands-on, seminar based learning do not make it a feasible option for remote learning. For that reason, we have made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel Summer Preview for this year. Please know that as we look forward to Summer 2021, we remain committed to supporting your educational journey.

Summer Preview is a full week of classes and activities. More about what the program experience is like can be found below. And once you know you’re coming, be sure to read through our check-in and departure sections for key details about when to get here and where to go.
