SUMMER SESSION

Students taking the summer session will have classes Monday through Thursday from approximately 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. (see schedule below). There will be no classes on Fridays.  This gives the opportunity for students to participate in optional tutoring, field trips or cultural events.

Different from the fall and spring, the summer gives "track" options for students to utilize the IEC instruction in different ways.

Students have the option of attending:

Track 1

Full-time for 20 - 25 hours per week (core and elective courses).  No TOEFL score required for admission. 

Students who want to matriculate in the University as graduate or undergraduate students must be able to place in and successfully complete the advanced level of the IEC summer program in Track 1.

Track 2

Part-time for 15 hours per week (core language classes only).  No TOEFL score required for admission. 

*For permanent residents or US citizens who do not need a visa to study.

Track 3

Part-time for 15 hours per week (IEC core and afternoon classes plus one University course for 3 credits). Applicants should show proof of at least a 75 iBT score. This is recommended for students who wish to take courses at Stony Brook for the summer only and do not intend to apply for a degree program. Please  see the University's Summer Session for a detailed course schedule and e-mail your choice to the IEC.  Each student will be responsible to pay for the 3-credit course in addition to all IEC fees.

NOTE: Students who  require an I-20 for an F-1 student visa to come to Stony Brook can only  take Track 1 or Track 3 (if they fulfill the above TOEFL requirement).
