Summer School Admissions

Summer School has an open enrollment policy. No tests or assessments are required for admission.

Admission to Summer School does not imply admission to any other school of the University. Should a student wish to attend another school of the University, application should be made to the Dean of Admission of that school. A student wishing to receive graduate credit for summer coursework must have credentials on file in the School of Professional & Continuing Studies for admission as a special student.

Only SPCS admits students to degree programs as part of Summer School. If interested in admission to an SPCS degree program, please visit the Degree Program Admissions page for details.
