    Welcome to YU Summer School!  We invite students from across the region to enjoy the YU summer experience: exceptional professors, personal attention, focused learning opportunities, and great course selections, all in an exciting and vibrant New York City setting.

    The YU Summer 2015 Program includes foundational and general education courses, graduate school prerequisites, and courses across majors and disciplines, in both the colleges of Arts and Sciences and the Sy Syms School of Business.  YU summer classes are co-ed, affordable, educationally rigorous, and a great way to use your summer vacation to make progress towards a college degree.

    We now also have online options!  We know that you are busy, even in the summer.  Maybe you have an internship or a job, and you don’t have the time to sit in a classroom.  YU Global is proud to offer 13 fully online courses in a wide range of subjects.  These courses are available to YU and non-YU students." 

    Courses take place on both our midtown and upper Manhattan campuses.  We offer two separate sessions, with both morning and afternoon classes in each session.

    2015 Program Dates
    Session I: May 27–June 30
    Session II: July 6–August 6

    Full summer: May 27-August 6

    Additional information is as follows. Please contact Professor Gillian Steinberg at gsteinbe@yu.edu if you have any questions or want to learn more about applying to YU Summer School.  For more information about online courses, email yuglobalhelp@yu.edu.
