Penn's Coronavirus COVID-19 Page
As of March 12, 2020, Penn Summer Sessions are scheduled to run 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 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.
