Due to the continued spread of COVID-19, the University System of Georgia has decided to hold all classes online until fall 2020. In light of this new situation, we regret that we will not be able to move forward with Summer Institute or Summer Sessions programs for the year 2020.

All students who have made payments towards either program will be issued full refunds as quickly as possible.

Our office has enjoyed planning the summer programs for all of you. We’re sad that we will not be able to welcome you to Atlanta, Georgia this July-August. We do look forward to welcoming you in the future. 

Information about winter sessions and summer 2021 will be available soon. Please contact us anytime if you have questions about the cancellation of summer 2020 programs or future programs that you may attend.

The Summer Institute is a 4-week global program that offers students the opportunity to experience American higher education and culture. Students live in on-campus housing and attend Georgia State classes.
