You may access summaries and detailed lists of courses offered using the buttons below.

Things You Should Know

Please note that summer courses are intensive in nature, condensing as much as a week of work from a typical semester into each day. Students are encouraged to avoid taking two courses simultaneously and to avoid working full time or taking vacations while a course is in session.


  • Register two business days prior to the start of an online course, or by the first day of class for an in-person course.
  • Last day to drop is the first day of class for online and in-person courses.

Attention High School Students

Gordon College wants your first encounter with a college-level course to be as successful and rewarding as possible. We will ask you to provide a reference from a teacher that indicates you are prepared for college-level work. Furthermore, there are some courses our professors have indicated may not provide the type of first college experience we or you seek. Please contact our office to arrange a time we can discuss your interests and guide you to the course that will best serve your needs and interests.
