Register for Autumn

Autumn Semester starts August 31. This year, most classes will be offered in the 8-week format. While we will still offer some 16-week options along with 5-week classes and additional short term options, you'll find the majority of sections offered either the first 8 weeks, which begins on August 31, or the second 8 weeks, starting on October 25.

It's not too late to register for Summer

Summer Semester is under way, but you can still register for short-term classes. Short-term classes contain the same content as full-term classes, so you don't miss a thing! Condensing the information into a shorter term means more material will be covered each week. Short terms include:

  • An 8-week term starting Monday, June 8.
  • A 5-week term starting Monday, June 29

To find short-term classes:

  • Go to the Summer 2020 Class Schedules.
  • In the "Select Subject" bar, scroll down to select "8-Week Terms," "5-week Terms," or "Other Flex Terms" to see all short-term options, then click "Go."
