Online Courses

Tulane Pre-College Programs features two-and-three week online summer courses for academically talented and intellectually curious rising 6th - 12 grade students. We invite middle and high school students from around the world to discover, study, and explore through our engaging online learning platform.

Online pre-college program courses give you the flexibility to learn using a hybrid model of coursework that is both synchronous (class time spent online with other students and instructors) and asynchronous (self-paced assignments done individually). This includes hybrid classes that give you ample time to complete your coursework and seek help from instructors members between sessions.

As an online Pre-College student, you will enjoy a one-of-a-kind learning experience that offers a myriad of opportunities to engage, grow, and succeed. Best of all, you will benefit from our support, resources, and the relationships you forge — not only this summer but far into your educational future.

What to Expect

  • Online access to a proven curriculum and distinguished instructors
  • Live, synchronous class sessions with a mix of group work, discussion, and lectures
  • Asynchronous, independent work for students to complete on their own
  • Scheduled time slots for both live group sessions and individual work sessions
  • Participation and collaboration tools that allow asynchronous video, audio, and text commenting

2021 Dates and Tuition

Sessions run for two and three weeks, with courses meeting Monday–Friday. Please note that students may only attend one course in one session per summer. See our courses for summer 2021.

Online Classroom Technology Requirements


Participants will need to have daily access to a computer that is capable of running the latest versions of internet browsers, plug-ins, and software.

Internet Connection

Participants will need to be connected to high-speed internet that will support interactive audio and video.


Participants should have a webcam to support daily participation in class.


If you are using a laptop with a built-in microphone, we recommend that you use headphones during live class sessions to avoid echo or feedback. If possible, we suggest that you use a USB-based headset with a microphone for clear audio when participating in class.

Quiet Learning Environment

Do your best to choose a comfortable, distraction-free learning space for the live class meeting times. Keep in mind that the setting should be appropriate for interacting with instructors and fellow students on camera.
