After careful consideration, we have decided it’s best to cancel this in-person program scheduled for this summer. This was a very hard choice to make, but we think it’s the best decision, given the current situations all around the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Full refunds will be given in the coming days.  Please feel free to contact Michelle Harman if you have any questions surrounding this cancellation.

While our in-person programs are cancelled, we are still running our online Summer Session for-credit courses which include languages, communication, and science courses with lab credits just to name a few.  Click here to view our Summer Session offerings.

Stay well and know that we appreciate your interest in Susquehanna University.
