Courses are offered in the summer either in a ten-week term or in one of two successive five-week terms.  In 2014 the ten-week term begins on May 19th, and the ends August 2nd; the first five-week term begins on May 19th and ends on June 23rd, while the second five-week term begins on June 26th and ends on August 2nd.

Students should be aware that summer terms are shorter than spring and fall terms, and courses are taught on an accelerated schedule.  A ten-week summer course proceeds half again as fast as a normal fifteen-week spring or fall course; a five-week summer course proceeds three times as fast.  Taking four summer courses (12 credits) will keep a student as busy as taking six courses (18 credits) in fall or spring.
