Make your summer count

If you’re prepared to work hard, you can earn as many as 16 credits between May and August by taking summer classes. Fast-paced, intense summer courses can help you graduate earlier, reduce your fall course load, or get your degree back on track. In-person, online, and blended courses offer you flexible options to make your summer count.
