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 22-August 4, 2023).
  • You can take the equivalent of one credit per week, so you could accumulate as many as 11 credits this summer.
  • Registration begins February 16-17 for graduate students, February 20-March 3 for undergraduate students, and March 3 for special students.
How to apply
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.

Log into CampS; go to the Financial Aid tile and then click on the "Summer Aid Application" button. Complete information is available at Blugold Central.
