Summer Institute Information

Lehigh University Campus

Welcome to the 2019 Summer Institute! This site provides information for current students (and prospective students wondering how this all works!) as an overview of all you will need for the 2019 Summer Institute. We cover registration, payment, housing, transportation, and everything else that you need to order to attend and get the most out of your experience while at Lehigh University.

The 2019 Summer Institute will be held on the campus of Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA. 
Cpsy 452 and 453, only, will be taught at the American College of Greece in Athens again in 2020.


It is required that all students arriving for Session One attend Orientation.   It will be held on Tuesday, June 25, 1:15 p.m. at Linderman Library, Room 200.  This will be after your first class session.  Materials about classes and locations, your stay at Lehigh, social networking events and faculty advising will be discussed.  Orientation also provides a chance for you to meet with fellow students in a more informal setting, learn about Lehigh's vast resources and provides an opportunity to get expert assistance from the University's IT staff.   And, there is free lunch!

Session 2 - Orientation packets will be delivered to your course location.
Session 3 - Orientation packets will be delivered to your course location.
