Summer Session

sun makes an excellent study light

Summer courses are available to current students, those starting in the fall, students attending other universities during the year, or interested non-degree seeking students.

Key points to consider about summer classes:

  • Class sizes are kept small.
  • Length of courses range from one week to eight weeks (May 24-August 6, 2021).
  • You can take the equivalent of one credit per week, so you could accumulate as many as 11 credits this summer.
  • Registration is underway!
Current UWEC students

Current students can register through MyBlugolds CampS. Their registration time will be shown on their Student Center. No deposit or PAC is required for summer enrollment, however, students are encouraged to meet with an adviser.

New transfer or first-year students

New students are welcome to start with summer session. If you have already been admitted, contact Admissions to change your entrance term to summer. More information will be sent to you. Note: Newly admitted degree-seeking undergraduate students, transfer students and readmitted students are required to make a $100 registration deposit. No PAC is required for summer enrollment, although students are encouraged to meet with an adviser.

Students enrolled at other universities or non-degree seeking students

Students who are not UW-Eau Claire degree-seeking students may come as "Special Students." Students fill out the UW System application. Click on Special Student (undergraduate or graduate) after registering as a new user. Find more information about coming as a special at Admissions.

Admitted, degree-seeking students may be eligible for summer financial aid. Summer aid is based on the 2020-2021 FAFSA, so you must have submitted this to be eligible. If you would like to be considered for possible financial aid resources for summer, we would recommend that you apply as soon as possible. Log into MyBlugold CampS; go to Self Service > Student Center and then click on the "Summer Aid Application" link under Financial Aid. Complete information is available at Blugold Central.

Tuition and fees are on a "per credit" basis. For additional information, Blugold Central has a complete listing of tuition and fees.

NOTE: Be sure to check the "special course fees." Online courses as well as others may charge additional fees.

Newly admitted degree-seeking, undergraduate students and transfer students are required to make a $100 enrollment deposit. This is refundable up until the day before the first day of classes. No PAC is required for summer session, although students are encouraged to meet with an adviser.

FULL PAYMENT is due on June 14, 2021, to avoid a $30 administrative service fee.
