The School


The School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions (SCE) provides outstanding educational opportunities throughout the year for people of all ages and interests. We present programs in a wide variety of formats on campus, online, and around the world.

The School has its roots in summer study at Cornell, which began in 1876, only eight years after the opening of the University. The Cornell University Summer Session, established in 1892, is one of the oldest programs of its type in the United States and continues today as one of the most highly regarded of its kind among peer institutions.

For information about our programs, visit www.sce.cornell.edu, e-mail cusce@cornell.edu, call (607) 255-4987, or write to B20 Day Hall, Ithaca, NY 14853-2801.

Advising Services


If you know someone who has been out of school for several years and who wants to resume his or her education, you may want to mention Cornell’s Continuing Education Information Service, which provides counseling, referral, and news about short courses, workshops, professional updates, and executive programs offered by the university. For information, e-mail cusce@cornell.edu, call (607) 255-4987, or write to Continuing Education, B20 Day Hall, Ithaca, NY 14853-2801.

Degrees


Although SCE helps students working toward degrees by registering them in Cornell courses, SCE does not itself grant degrees.

Facilities


The School’s Cornell in Washington program is housed in the Cornell University Wolpe Center, located at 2148 O Street, NW, in Washington, DC.

Students, faculty in residence, and academic tutors reside in the twenty-seven apartments on the upper three floors of the building. The program’s classrooms, administrative offices, computer lab and social spaces are located on the first floor. The Center is centrally located in the lively Dupont Circle neighborhood.
