About the program

Northwestern University's Summer Academic Workshop (SAW) is a three-week program designed to equip students with the tools to thrive at Northwestern. Students will enroll in writing course designed to strengthen their writing skills and gain key insights and resources to help them successfully navigate the university.

Students will live together in a traditional campus residence hall and experience Northwestern life under the mentorship of six upperclass peer counselors. As a participant, you will also have the opportunity to move into your permanent residence hall earlier than the regular move-in date for incoming students. All meals are provided during the program.

Housing, meals, and social activities are completely covered through the Office of the Provost. Students and families are only expected to pay for personal items and transportation to campus.
