Summer Sessions

Summer Sessions

Your summer sessions playbook

Taking summer school classes offers you a chance to get closer to your degree, catch up on degree requirements or take courses for personal and professional development. Attend one, two or all three sessions. Choose from hundreds of six-week or eight-week sessions, on campus or online.

The ASU academic calendar has all the dates and deadlines you need to know.

Enrolling in summer school allows new students to get familiar with college life at ASU and adjust to the rigor and pace of college courses before taking a full course load. Summer sessions also provide students with flexibility in their course loads during the fall and spring semesters.

How to Enroll in Summer Classes

Returning ASU Undergraduate

If you are an undergraduate degree-seeking student who previously attended ASU but who has not been enrolled at ASU for up to seven consecutive fall or spring semesters, you may be eligible to return through Quick Re-entry. You do not need to submit a new application or application fee.

If you have previously attended ASU but have not been enrolled at ASU for eight or more semesters, you must apply for readmission using the admission application.

Nondegree Seeking Student

If you are an undergraduate student who would like to take classes for personal development this summer, you may submit an application for undergraduate admission as a nondegree student.
