A course offered during a summer session has the same amount of content and learning outcomes as if you took that course during the regular semester.

Summer courses are just delivered at a faster pace with a more concentrated learning experience.

So, it’s recommended to enroll in 2 courses (6 credits) at most in a single summer session term.

So, it’s recommended to enroll in just 1 course (3 credits) during Winter Session. If you’d like to take more courses, talk to your academic advisor before you register.

Students can enroll in 21 credits max between both Winter Session and Spring Semester. You’ll need to get permission from the College dean who oversees your degree program to exceed this limit.
