Summer Preview

This summer, take a week to immerse yourself in college life, explore a new topic, and make friends with other like-minded students.

Thank you to our students for making Summer 2014 such a success. To learn what is in store for Summer 2015, check back on December 15. Sign up to receive an email reminder.

Our one-week, non-credit Summer Preview Program offers a choice of three seminars to rising high school freshman and sophomores like yourself. You'll have the opportunity to explore an academic interest in depth or investigate an entirely new one.

Get a Sneak Peek

We've designed our Summer Preview seminars to be small to allow students to immerse themselves in a specific topic through lectures, discussions, and individual and group work. Our students also benefit from a college workshop that will help them maximize their high school studies in order to be better prepared when the time comes to fill out college applications.

We also offer a variety of planned, social group activities so you can get to know both Boston University and the city.

Summer Preview is open to both commuter and residential students. Please note that you must be 14 or older to live in the dorm.
