The Summer Pre-College Programs at Susquehanna showcase the university’s colleges of the arts, business and science by offering engaging, weeklong workshops designed especially for high-achieving students in an on-campus, residential format. Faculty and college student mentors challenge high school students who want to learn new skills, improve their abilities or explore topics that add to their college résumé.

Vaccination Requirement

With recent faster-spreading variants — especially those more severely affecting young adults and children — Susquehanna University instituted vaccination protocols for the health and safety of its students, faculty, staff and guests.

  • All students residing on campus over the summer, including high school students who participate in pre-college programs, must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 by the time they arrive on campus. Fully vaccinated is defined as at least two weeks after the final dose.
    • The minimum age for getting vaccinated is determined by each COVID-19 vaccine. For the list of approved vaccinations and their age indications and schedule, visit this CDC page.
  • A copy of the student’s COVID-19 vaccination card must be submitted with the required medical form (accessible from each program page).

If you have questions regarding the summer vaccination requirement, email Michelle Harman at or call 570-372-4451.
