    You can still make the most of your summer with remote learning

    We know that your summer plans feel up-in-air, and they may stay that way for a while. Register now for summer courses to hold your spot. If your plans change, don’t worry. You can cancel for a full refund any time before the start of classes.

    All of our summer 2020 undergraduate classes have moved to remote learning. Summer graduate courses in business, education, law, music, nursing and theology also have moved to online delivery. 

    Summer sessions offers opportunities to fit some additional courses into your year – whether you are trying to graduate ahead of schedule, catch-up to an existing plan, or make room in your schedule for additional courses. Also, summer courses count toward your GPA, so this is also a great opportunity to retake a course if you would like to improve your GPA.
