Update: COVID-19 Impact on Summer Sessions

Note: While the majority of undergraduate and graduate programs will remain online in the wake of COVID-19, courses that require in-person instruction or research will take place on campus. Traditionally in-person courses that will be taught online will be noted as Remote on the Registrar’s website. Remote classes will meet synchronously at their published times, only online rather than in person. Courses labeled Online are those which have traditionally been taught online during the summer and are taught asynchronously — coursework and assignments must be completed by the designated times but can be done on a schedule convenient to the student. If you have questions about a course, contact the relevant professor or department.
