During the two-week program, TSSP students will experience a taste of college life: spending four hours a day in lecture and lab taught by Tulane faculty and graduate students, eating in the student center, and meeting with Tulane science and engineering undergraduate students. In between class and lab, TSSP students participate in lunch-and-learn sessions with industry professionals, faculty, students, and university administrators. In the evenings, Tulane faculty open up their research facilities to the TSSP, allowing our students to get an up-close look at the innovative and cutting-edge research being conducted on campus.

It is a residential program, and students have the option to live on campus in a dormitory for an additional fee. For the students who opt to live on campus, there are some scheduled activities, which are included in the cost of living on campus. To provide the students with ample free time to read and study for the rigorous college-level courses, we do not over-schedule activities.
