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.
