Warm Up to Summer Session

Summer is the perfect time to make progress toward your degree. And, because courses range from three to twelve weeks and can be taken at any WSU campus, you’re bound to find a schedule that fits into your summer plans.

Great Value and Flexibility

All students pay the in-state tuition rate and there are no academic advising holds during summer (although we recommend you talk with your advisor about your summer plans to ensure you choose courses that will help you meet your academic goals). You may be eligible to receive financial aid funds.

Consider Summer Session if any of the following apply to you:

  • You have to retake a class or two
  • You need to catch up from taking a part-time course load fall or spring semester
  • You took a semester off and are now ready to jump back into your academics
  • You want to complete a minor or certificate
  • You want to graduate early

Summer Session 2023 Tuition

WSU students are free to take summer classes at any WSU campus without having to change campuses or fill out other paperwork. Just register at the campus(es) of your choice.

Need more convincing?

  • Summer courses are shorter than the fall and spring semester courses, giving you the flexibility to work, play and earn credit in the summer
  • Most classes are smaller so you’ll receive more personal attention from your instructors
