Penn's Coronavirus COVID-19 Page
Penn Summer Session I and our 11-Week Summer Session courses will be offered remotely. Currently, Summer Session II is scheduled to run on campus, as planned. The situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is fluid and being monitored closely. Please check back periodically for updates. Should there be any changes to the policy that impacts our decision to hold courses this summer, we are committed to providing timely updates to enrolled students via email. Should any of these programs be cancelled, students will receive a full refund of program fees at that time.

Our campus task force is monitoring the situation daily and making active decisions as we receive new information. Our number one priority is the health and safety of our campus community. You can stay updated with all developments on Penn’s special coronavirus webpage.

2020 Penn Summer On-Campus Summer Session II dates:

Summer Session II: July 2 – August 7, 2020

Summer classes are smaller in size, providing greater interactive discussion, and all are taught by Penn instructors. Plus, you have the flexibility to schedule your classes during the day or evening which means you can select courses that fit into your summer plans.

Penn Summer On-Campus is open to:

  • Current Penn undergraduates
  • Visiting undergraduate students
  • International students (if already enrolled at an accredited US college or university for the fall semester)
  • Working professionals and Penn employees
  • Penn alumni

During any of the three sessions, you can register to take classes at the School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Penn Law School and the Wharton School. Get more information about enrolling in Penn Summer On-Campus.

If you are not going to be in Philadelphia this summer, but still want to take advantage of Penn’s academics, consider one of our Penn Summer Online courses. No matter where you are in the world, you can participate in the academics of the Ivy League.
