COVID-19 RESPONSE: NYU continues to closely monitor developments related to COVID­19 and adjust University policy accordingly. As a result and in alignment with our obligation to safeguard public health, all NYU 2020 summer programs and courses being offered will be conducted remotely. This includes College & Career Lab.

NYU is powered by a culture of connectivity and innovation. Our faculty and staff have worked to develop immersive online learning spaces that allow students to interact with faculty and collaborate with their classmates. We are committed to providing our students with the highest quality instruction and educational resources despite this programming change.

Thank you, again, for your interest in NYU College & Career Lab - we look forward to seeing you remotely this summer.

NYU's College & Career Lab — led by faculty across various NYU schools and departments, including NYU School of Law, Stern School of Business, Tisch School of the Arts, Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development, Tandon School of Engineering, School of Global Public Health, Rory Meyers College of Nursing, The College of Dentistry, The Office of Sustainability, academic programs from The College of Arts and Science and NYU University Life Offices — will expose students to introductory online courses within each featured academic school or department. Every student will get an opportunity to interact with university professors, students, and alumni through an online platform.  

The College and Career Lab is designed to serve economically disadvantaged, first-generation college-going, and historically underrepresented students attending New York City schools. The goal of the College and Career Lab is to prepare, support, and inspire students to think about various career paths and diversity within career sectors while exposing students to college courses. The Lab allows students to gain valuable skills that prepare them with opportunities to thrive.

Online Program Details

NYU’s College and Career Lab is an intensive, free, non-credit summer program for current 7th and 8th graders attending New York City schools. Students will now be able to engage with our program online with live, interactive and pre-recorded content. Students can log on to our online platform, access courses, lectures, and modules prepared by professors, staff, and students from multiple NYU schools. CCL will track students progress through an interactive project to culminate the program.

While we are disappointed that we can't welcome you in-person to campus this summer, and know that this development is likely disappointing to you, as well, we thank you for your patience and flexibility under these unprecedented circumstances. Students who successfully complete CCL summer programming will be invited to participate in on campus programming when in-person university activity can safely resume.

Students can expect to meet CCL program staff, NYU faculty, alumni, and students through our online platform during the summer. The program schedule will be provided to students and families two weeks prior to the start of the program. The sample schedule from summer 2019 is provided below.
