Think Summer Session.

Summer can make more of a difference than you think.

Now’s the time to talk to your advisor and the Financial Aid Office about specific classes you need this summer! Summer classes are offered in person, on-line, or in a blended format.  Some classes even incorporate travel!

Save Time! Graduate on time, even early! With more than 30 majors offering courses, you can design up to a full course load.

Save Money! Summer tuition can save you thousands of dollars while you earn a full semester’s worth of credits.

Where can Summer Session take you?

A draft summer schedule will be available on Student Planning soon and most listings will be in place by December 8.

Don’t see what you’re looking for? New classes are being added daily, so check back often, or contact the department directly.

Online and in-person registration for summer will begin on Monday February 19.

Here’s where Summer Session took Jessica (Festa) Valente, KSC Class of 2004, currently Program Administrator at Suffolk University in Boston:

After I changed my major to psychology, I took Summer Session courses to get on track and graduate on time. I really like the relaxed, laid back feeling on campus, and I was able to focus my attention on some of the more difficult courses by taking them in between semesters.

Online Summer Session courses enabled Sarah to complete a degree in Women’s and Gender Studies in three years. When she graduated with her class in May 2015, Sarah added a BA in Sociology and another in Social Science.

Summer Session is a wonderful opportunity to take courses that you may otherwise not have the opportunity to take!
