Admissions

Duke Summer Session Online participants represent the next generation of leaders and problem-solvers.  If you are a well-rounded, academically-motivated student who is seeking a rewarding experience alongside your like-minded peers this summer, we invite you to apply! 

Eligibility Requirements

Students living or studying in the United States are eligible to apply for Duke Summer Session Online. We look for students who have strong character, a commitment to service, and a history of academic excellence. Students who are currently rising 10th – 12th graders are eligible to apply for Business, Law, & Public Policy in the Pandemic Era: A Global Challenge, Mathematics for Solving Global Challenges, and Research for Solving Global Challenges. The College Admissions Seminar and Workshop Series is open to rising 11th and 12th grade students. 

Due to international laws related to online programming for minors and limited resource allocations, we are unable to offer our online classes to students who are not physically located in the United States this summer.
