Summer Programs

At this time, the College is planning to operate all summer programs as scheduled and there are no changes to academic nor residential logistics for these programs. This is an evolving situation and future decisions about summer programs will be made based on the College’s coordination with government and public health officials concerning COVID-19.

Please be assured that any changes or cancellations made by the College will amend our refund policy and allow for refunds. Additionally, should any government policies restrict a registered student from participating in a summer program, a refund will also be processed.

Sarah Lawrence has established a webpage where all updates about the College’s response to COVID-19 are posted. You are encouraged to review all sections of the page and to check back frequently to stay on top of the latest developments.​


The mission of Sarah Lawrence College is to cultivate leaders and innovators with strong values and a keen sense of purpose—an answer to the question, Why? We bring this mission to each of our summer programs.

Every program is designed to meet students at their current talent and skill level, and to help them develop and grow through individualized attention and the creation of original work. Our programs also have a collaborative ethos in which students learn from each other to create a community of passionate and intensive study.
