Summer Sessions

Stay on track or get ahead with summer classes

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.

Choose from over 5,000 classes available in summer 2020. The ASU academic calendar has all the dates and deadlines you need to know.

Summer 2020

More than 20 of ASU’s most popular classes will be offered with multiple start dates throughout the summer.

Summer sessions A and C (starting on Monday, May 18, 2020) will be offered through ASU Online, iCourses and live, digital Zoom sessions. There will be no in-person teaching for summer sessions A or C.

Almost all instruction in summer session B beginning July 1 will be offered remotely, through live, virtual classes, ASU Online and ASU iCourses. A small number of courses in summer B session that do not lend themselves to remote instruction will be offered with in-person instruction on campus.

Students who already have a bachelor’s degree or are looking to enroll in ASU courses at the graduate level are welcome to apply as a graduate nondegree-seeking applicant.

Returning ASU undergraduates

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. See undergraduate readmission for further information.
