Limited spots for Conn’s summer session are now open 

Connecticut College students have an opportunity to explore new subjects they’ve been curious about or to enhance their majors through an intensive, five-week summer session beginning June 1.

Building on last year’s successful inaugural summer session, this year’s courses represent a diverse range of departments and subjects, including psychology, government, economics and computer science.

Courses will all be offered remotely from June 1-July 2 and will be held synchronously, so please review the course schedules before registering. The complete course list will be available soon.

Matriculated, degree-seeking students may enroll in up to six credits, and the final courses will be determined by May 10, based on enrollment. Courses must have a minimum of 10 students to run. We recommend that you register as soon as registration opens if you are interested in a specific course. Students will be notified of courses that will not be held and will be given the opportunity to select another course, based on availability.

Financial aid will be available, and the cost per course is $3250. Courses should be paid in full, minus financial aid before the start of the session.

With many summer internships and research opportunities suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this summer session is a valuable chance for students to complement their regular academic schedules and complete semester-long courses in five weeks.
