Summer School Courses

At the University of Rochester:

The summer course schedule is available online in the fall and students may register online beginning in April, at the same time they register for spring classes.  Four- and six-week sessions begin after the close of the spring semester, and a second four- and six-week session begins later in the summer.  Courses are guaranteed to run as long as students have registered by the first day of class.

Students are encouraged to live in the residence halls, and may eat on campus.  The Gleason Library and the IT Center are open late, and movie nights, festival outings, and other activities provide plenty to do when studying is over.

Students take courses to get ahead, to catch up, to repeat a course, to complete a cluster, or to try something new.  Grades and credits earned are figured in the student’s grade point average just as they are during the academic year.  Students may not elect to take summer courses on the S/F option, however.

In addition to some “standard” summer courses that are normally offered as shown below, students have options each year in areas such as AH, ANT, ASL, AST, DAN, ENG, HIS, LAT, PSC and SA – and also may register for internships.

Outside the University of Rochester:

See section entitled Transfer Credit.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Students who have been separated from college for unsatisfactory academic progress will not automatically receive academic credit for work taken elsewhere during the period of their separation from The College.  Students should seek advice regarding such credit from the Center.

The Center for Advising Services will approve a summer work program according to the following provision:

  1. The College where work is to be taken must be recognized as providing quality college work.
  2. No academic credit will be granted for work comparable to that for which a student has already received credit.
  3. Transfer credit is granted according to the standard policy as described in the section on Transfer Credits.
