Summer Term offers more choices. Why not:

  • Try something new?

What you need to know:

  • Registration for Summer Term starts in November and will remain open until early May 2018 (closed during Christmas break). Self-register as soon as you decide to take a course, after consultation with academic advisor.

  • Tuition is $470 per credit hour ($1,880 for a 4 credit course), a reduced rate since financial aid is NOT available. Tuition for courses taken for enrichment only (audited without credit) is $500. There are fees associated with lab and field science or studio art courses ($150 for most courses).
  • Courses are configured to require your full-time attention. It is recommended that most students should take only one course at a time. Consult with your academic advisor before registering for more than one class. 
  • Most classes will start immediately after graduation on Monday, May 21 and will generally be finished in mid-June, so you still have time to work that great summer job or internship.
  • You will be able to register for courses until May 21. At that time we will let you know if there are courses that will not run due to low enrollment, so you may adjust your plans accordingly. The minimum enrollment required for a class to be held is normally three to six students. Courses that have reached minimum enrollment will remain open for registration until early May.  
  • Online courses require high-speed internet connection and a computer with the capacity to efficiently download and run programs used in the course.
  • Housing arrangements are coordinated through the Business Development and Scheduling office. Reserve housing by completing a Summer Room Reservation Form.


More information about summer housing will be available in Spring 2018. If you have questions or need more information about housing arrangements, please contact or 978.867.4902.
