Please know that while many classes fall into the standard three Summer Session terms, there are some courses that will run the full summer session (May 5 - Aug. 3) and some that will start and end outside of the standard sessions. Please be sure to check the dates listed on your schedule in your Student eServices account once you have registered for your summer classes.

It is important to note that a Summer Session course is equivalent in its content and learning outcomes as the same course offered during the fall or spring semester. Students may register for up to 19 credits for the entire summer term, but are strongly advised to not enroll in more than two (2) courses or six (6) credits in any one summer session. Should a student enroll in more than two (2) courses or six (6) credits for May Session, the University will contact the student to discuss if it is reasonable and appropriate.
