About the Program

PSP is a six-week program which offers you advanced opportunities to prepare for the rigors of Cornell by challenging and supporting you as you navigate the transition from high school to college. Participating in PSP also allows you to become familiar with the campus and the Ithaca community prior to your fall semester. Therefore, you get a head start on familiarizing yourself with your new home away from home before your peers!

The program includes field trips, guest lectures, and a wide range of social and cultural activities. Participation is restricted to students selected by college or special-program offices. Students selected to attend will be notified by mid-April. Tuition and fees, and room and board charges for those selected are covered by the program.
