As you begin to think about your summer plans, we are writing to share information about expanded opportunities at Barnard. Over the last few years, we have continued to explore ways to maximize our campus for our current students and we are excited to announce that, beginning this summer, the College will host a select number of for-credit course offerings through a newly established Summer Session and Continuing Studies Office.
Working together with other areas of the College, Summer Session and Continuing Studies will offer a number of three-credit, in-person courses this summer in a variety of disciplines and taught by Barnard faculty. As in the past, Barnard will continue to host a wide variety of programs and opportunities, including the Summer Research Institute (SRI), student internships and summer employment opportunities, and pre-college programs. Summer will be lively on campus with residential students engaged in coursework, research, internships, and summer employment at Barnard and throughout New York City. We have launched a website that lists the courses being offered and other key information related to Summer 2022 at Barnard.
Courses will run during one session, July 5 to August 12, and registration will begin on March 14. Instructions on how to register for courses will be posted to the Summer Session website and courses will be filled as students register. Students will be charged on a per-credit basis and will be billed separately from fall and spring tuition. Barnard students who receive financial aid during the academic year will be able to apply for partial tuition assistance through the Supplemental Academic Support Application (SASA). The process and deadline to apply for partial tuition assistance will be shared on the website soon.
Courses will also be open to Columbia students, visiting students from other colleges and universities, and a select number of pre-baccalaureate high school students. Please be aware that Barnard graduates or those students who plan to have their degree conferred in May are not eligible to register for a summer course. Students currently on a leave of absence should reach out to Dean Grabiner if they are interested in taking a summer course for any specific procedures they will need to follow.
Barnard Housing will be available over the summer to students participating in SRI, taking summer classes, and exploring other opportunities in the city. Barnard Dining will also have some summer operations. Details about prices, dates, and deadlines to apply for housing, as well as information about how to sign up for a summer meal plan, will be posted to the website soon.
Please feel free to reach out to email@example.com if you have any questions regarding summer course offerings.
All the best as you consider your summer plans,
Jennifer Fondiller, Vice President of Enrollment and Communications
Aleschia Velasquez, Executive Director of Summer Session and Continuing Studies
