Welcome to the 2020 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 2020 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.
All 2020 Summer Institute courses will be held remotely this year due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.
Courses will be held in the time frame that they would have been on-campus. Check Courses and Books below for whether they will be held synchronously or asynchronously.
Orientation allows you to meet with fellow students in a more informal setting and provides an opportunity to get expert assistance from the University's IT staff. It will be held the first week of class at a time yet to be determined.
Orientation packets will be delivered when you check-in to the dorm or on the first day of class at your course location.
