How to Apply

The visiting student application for Summer Session 2021 will be available February 1. 

Duke Summer Session welcomes international students currently attending another college or university or who have graduated from college. To begin the application process you must complete and return the completed Duke Summer Session application form, and submit all requested supporting documents. Applications will not be reviewed until all requested materials have been received.

Your Summer Session application is considered complete and ready for review only when you have submitted all of the following:

  • The completed Duke Summer Session application
  • Proof of language proficiency (TOEFL or IELTS or DET score)
  • An official or unofficial transcript from your undergraduate institution

Upon receipt of your completed application, we will send you by e-mail either an admission confirmation letter and fee statement or an explanation of why we are unable to accept your application. 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you plan to transfer summer coursework to your home university, you are encouraged to contact the appropriate office at your college or university to become familiar with transfer policies.
