Welcome to Summer School!
UNC-Chapel Hill students enroll in summer courses to meet their academic requirements to graduate on time and to take classes for personal enrichment. Visiting students take courses for credit to transfer to their home institutions, to meet professional certification requirements, or to satisfy personal curiosity. Through summer classes, students can complete General Education criteria, meet requirements for their majors, or take a course that was closed out in fall or spring. They have the option of a three-week Maymester and two five-week sessions. Courses are diverse, some with travel or experiential education not possible in the academic year and others with intensive research experiences. Students can also explore and learn resume-ready skills through hands-on Makerspace courses and activities. Summer School supports faculty in creating and enhancing courses, developing interdisciplinary offerings, and involving students in research opportunities. Summer School programs enhance the University’s recruitment and retention efforts for a diverse, engaged student population.
