Summer Start is a great way to jumpstart your WashU experience by enrolling in courses to satisfy degree requirements, building your WashU community, and exploring WashU beyond the classroom. Through collaborative learning, shared experiences, and mentorship you will discover resources and develop skills to aid and inspire your time at WashU.

The intensive five-week academic program provides you the opportunity to earn six college credits, make friends, and become familiar with the campus and surrounding neighborhoods.

International students can opt to participate in Summer Start and should plan to arrive for the International Undergraduate Orientation sponsored by the Office for International Students and Scholars (OISS).  This program provides opportunities for you to meet one another and discover the resources offered by OISS.
