Summer Session

Taking courses over the summer is one of the best ways to catch up or to get your degree faster. Tuition doesn't cost any more than during a regular semester.  There are hundreds of summer courses available, so it's possible to be enrolled part time or full time from home (or anywhere, really!).

Summer Semester Applications

For those who are not currently enrolled students, the deadline for summer applications is May 1, 2020. For both new and returning students, remember to contact Financial Aid and fill out the Summer Financial Aid application on SSC.

Summer Semester Dates

You can select courses that vary in length to create a custom summer schedule, or to accommodate your other summer commitments.
