Announcing changes for Summer Term 2020

Out of concern for the safety of UW–Madison students, faculty and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, Chancellor Blank has suspended in-person Summer Term courses. Summer Term will continue online, and enrollment is now open.

For more than a decade, Summer Term has offered quality online learning taught by our world-class faculty and instructors in a wide variety of subjects, including in-demand courses and general education requirements. This summer, we’ll offer over 300 online courses—more than ever before.

The Summer Term scholarship application deadline is extended from April 1 to May 1. Financial aid is also available for Summer Term.

In uncertain times, we’re here to help you stay focused on academics and stay on track for graduation.
