Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CMU Pre-College residential and in-person instruction has been canceled for summer 2020. 

This summer we will be offering online learning opportunities for our Computational Biology, National High School Game Academy, and Summer Session programs. The applications are now closed for Computational Biology and National High School Game Academy. We will be accepting Summer Session applications until May 29, 2020.

All application fees and enrollment deposits that we have received to date have been refunded in full. If you have question or concerns about our refund process, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The Carnegie Mellon Pre-College programs provide learning and development opportunities for high school students both inside and outside of the classroom. 

Our Pre-College program, which mirrors the undergraduate experience, gives rising juniors and seniors the opportunity to explore their interests while receiving instruction from acclaimed Carnegie Mellon faculty and staff.

Students will have the opportunity to participate in a robust student experience which is curated by Student Affairs staff and a team of residential staff who are current Carnegie Mellon students.

We value the holistic student experience that includes academic and personal development in order to prepare students for the future.

"The Carnegie Mellon Pre-College program was one of the most interesting, amazing, and challenging experiences I've had. I loved every second of it and know that I will look back fondly at my time over the summer." - Gia M, Drama '19
