Summer terms include May Term, June Term and July Term. Each term is four weeks long.
Registration for summer terms is available to currently enrolled degree-seeking students who are not graduating in May and deposit-paid non-degree-seeking students.
All holds must be resolved before you can register. Because course content is condensed into four weeks, the maximum number of credits that may be taken in any term is six.
