The Online Summer Program
Through Columbia's online interactive learning platform, students across the globe can engage with one another through rigorous curricular instruction, inclusive student life activities, and informative college success events.
Students in our 2-week program also have the opportunity to participate in the Columbia Writers Workshop, an intensive 2-week course dedicated to help students craft and perfect powerful college application essays.
Classes in our 1-week program run from 10:00 am–12:00 pm, followed by a 1-hour break, with classes continuing from 1:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m. Our 2-week program runs from 8:00 a.m.–11:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m., or 5:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m. ET.
