Choosing Classes

As a Summer Edge student you will:

  • Take the required 2-credit course designed to support newly admitted students in their transition to a research university.
  • Choose a 5-credit (or more) class of your choice.


The first step to choosing what classes you’ll take over the summer is clarifying your goals. You can take a class to:

  • Fulfill a General Education (GE) requirement
  • Complete a major requirement
  • Earn credits toward your degree while pursuing a passion

There are hundreds of classes to choose from every summer with both online and in-person options that run in one or more sessions, most of which are taught at a fast-paced 5-week format.


We’re here to help guide you - so let’s start exploring classes!
