What to Expect
You received a registration receipt via email, just after registering for your course which indicates the course(s) you are taking and the days and times the course(s) meet. Please expect to arrive at Cornish the day your course begins, 15 to 20 minutes early. Upon arrival, follow the signs to one of our check-in tables set up with staff to assist you in getting to your class(es). We will give you a course schedule and your Cornish ID at that time.
All participants in Summer at Cornish will be issued a student ID card that identifies you and grants you access to our buildings. At your earliest convenience, please email us a recent digital photo (jpg) of the participating student. The photo will help us expedite the ID process and have your card ready when you arrive. ID cards will be handed out at two central check-in points on the day you arrive. For those who have not sent a photo ahead of time, we’ll snap a quick photo and print the IDs on the spot. Again, please budget 15 to 20 additional minutes on the first day to get your ID card if you are unable to send a photo ahead of time. You will be required to carry this ID at all times.
All Summer at Cornish classes meet during the 9 am to 4 pm range Monday through Friday, with a built in lunch break. Times vary by discipline and course. Students receive their finalized class schedule with room and faculty assignments at first day check in. Residential students also attend recreational activities and programming on and off campus. Refer to the sample schedules for more information.
