Summer Sessions

Dominican University welcomes enrollment in Summer programs by:

  • All current and prospective Dominican University students
  • Students attending other colleges or universities who wish to catch up on course requirements and electives
  • Persons of all ages seeking enrichment or exploring the option of returning to college
  • Senior citizens, alumni, and college-bound high school students

Summer Sessions offer accelerated day, evening, and weekend courses varying in the number of meetings and weeks. Undergraduate and Graduate courses are offered for semester academic credit. Summer Sessions can also be an ideal time for students to enrich academic studies, lessen regular course loads, and reduce the overall time spent in completing the degree. Summer also includes opportunities to engage in independent study, or to enroll for an internship, field placement, tutorial, or similar learning activity. Courses are offered on campus, online, and abroad.

Non-degree-seeking students enrolling in Summer Session courses need not be formally admitted to the University. Summer courses are offered in an intensive and abbreviated format that is shorter than the usual 16-week semester. Courses on campus are offered in 5-, 8-, or 10-week sessions and cover a range of subjects taught by renowned faculty in small classroom settings.

Please consult the Academic Calendar at for specific session dates and deadlines.
