The Penn Summer Prep Program offers the challenge of college-level academics within an exploratory, non-credit environment. Students enroll in two immersive modules from across disciplines while benefiting from the rich educational resources of the University.

Summer 2021 modules will be posted in February 2021

The Penn Summer Prep Program has traditionally been an on-campus, in-person experience. Because of COVID-19, the program was delivered entirely online during the summer of 2020, with great success! No decisions regarding delivery (on-campus or online) have been made yet about the summer of 2021.
