Summer Semester registration now open
With a couple more blizzards in the forecast, now is the time to Think Summer and register for your summer semester schedule.
Registration opened last week, but there is plenty of time to get in there and pick
the classes, sections, and instructors you want to make your summer schedule the best.
Summer classes begin the day after Memorial Day, on Tuesday, May 27. The summer semester
is a shorter term as well—only 11 weeks long. So you can catch up on your Plan of
Study, or take a few classes to get ahead on your schedule for fall, without missing
your annual summer vacation.
