Why not add a traditional 3-week May course, Online course, or Internship to your summer plans? Westminster summer courses are a great opportunity to earn credit in major and general education courses with a discounted hourly tuition rate. Available again this year will be online courses for students who prefer to attend classes from home.
Summer registration for Westminster students opens early this year on Friday, February 25 before general public access. Register early to reserve a seat in your summer class!

May 13 - May 31
Traditional 3-Week May Session 2013
The traditional May summer session will begin on May 13 and will end on May 31. Classes will meet Monday-Friday for three weeks (unless otherwise noted on schedule), and students will be expected to attend class on a regular basis. The smaller class size with more personal attention is just one benefit of enrolling in a three-week summer session course at Westminster. Students enrolling in Westminster summer session classes will also receive letter grades that could potentially improve the Westminster grade point average (summer courses transferred from other institutions do not count in the GPA). Please see the attached information for summer session tuition.

June 3 - July 12
On-Line Summer Session 2013
Available again this year, online classes will provide the opportunity for students to complete course work from home on campus during the six-week period of June 3 – July 12. Students enrolling in online classes will work closely with their faculty instructor via the computer to complete their assignments online. Students who enroll for on-line classes should carefully review information for online classes before enrolling. Online classes will also receive letter grades that will be calculated in the Westminster GPA unless noted otherwise. Please see the attached information for summer session tuition.
