At this time, all previously scheduled Cornell Summer Session online courses, along with the Prefreshman Summer Program (PSP), Veterans' Summer Bridge Program, and Cornell in Washington courses, will be delivered online.

Cornell University has announced plans for the fall semester, which include a hybrid approach to a residential semester (with in-person, online and hybrid teaching modalities) and robust virus testing. Fall classes will start Sept. 2, according to a modified academic calendar that will have most students return home before Thanksgiving break. Students will finish the term with online instruction and exams in December, before a delayed start to the spring semester in February.

For those unable to return to Ithaca for the fall semester, remote learning options will be available.
