Isn’t it time for your summer breakthrough?

Taking Summer Term classes means you can get ahead in your studies and lighten your load during fall or spring. In just a few weeks, add a semester’s worth of work to your academic achievements—and still have time to savor the best of summer.

From the university’s most in-demand courses to advanced topics, Summer Term combines flexibility with academic rigor. Sessions are 3 weeks, 4 weeks, or 8 weeks long. You’ll cover the same material as you would during a traditional semester, but everything moves faster. It’s a quick but manageable pace.

Plus, it’s actually less expensive to complete your degree in four years with two Summer Terms rather than taking a fifth year. Check with your advisor for details.

Current degree-seeking undergraduates or graduate students can enroll for Summer Term through MyUW.
