Advocating for Credit/Placement

Summer Programs 2020 Notice
In light of the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic, CTY, in close coordination with Johns Hopkins University leadership, has made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Summer Programs. Please visit our online information center to learn more.

Credit Issues

Whether or not you get credit or placement for your summer programs course work depends on your school.

CTY itself does not offer credit for its courses, but your school may decide to do so based upon its own criteria. The process of requesting credit and/or placement through your school requires advance planning, time and patience. For most of our courses, it is not important to pursue credit and/or placement because the courses are quite different from typical school offerings. In other cases, working with schools is critical. We have developed a Parent's Guide (PDF), which helps families determine whether to pursue credit and/or placement and offers advice on the process of doing so.
