Students attend Summer School at UNC-Chapel Hill to meet their academic requirements to graduate on time and to take courses for personal enrichment. Through its three-week format, Maymester offers diverse courses with academic rigor as well as some travel not possible in the academic year. Through courses in two five-week sessions, students can also satisfy General Education criteria, meet requirements for their majors, or take a course that was closed out in fall or spring. Visiting students can take courses for credit to transfer to their home institutions, to meet professional certification requirements, or to satisfy personal curiosity. Summer School also supports summer programs in the University’s recruitment and retention efforts for a diverse, engaged student population.
