Summer School Admissions

Summer school is a great way to explore what Universities have to offer and to get a sneak peek into your Uni life. It is not a requirement for your College Applications, but it does portray you as a serious candidate. A summer program provides students with the opportunity to further explore their academic interest or try a new discipline at a university of their choice. It could be in-person on a college campus or it could be online. Additionally, students get to interact with faculties who can potentially be one of their recommenders for their college applications.

UniHawk helps you identify which summer program is best suited for you and assists you in filing a compelling application.
