Attending college this year was challenging in all-new ways, but you did it.

Maybe you took fewer credits? Now, it's time to catch up. Summer classes are the perfect way to bounce back.

In case you are new to summer classes, here's what you need to know:

  • Classes marked on the University-wide Class Schedule as Distance Education classes are completely online, so you can take them from home. Professors can either set a day and time to meet virtually or set the class up online as asynchronous. (There is a small chance some DE classes would require you to be on campus for a test, but it is unlikely. Check with the professor.)
  • Classes designated as Remote Faculty Instruction typically meet online on a specific day and time (usually synchronously via Zoom). Professors of RI classes have the option to use the classroom, such as for a test or guest lecture, so there is a possibility that students might need to be on campus at times during an RI course. Check with the professor.
  • This summer, some classes might be offered in the classroom with safety precautions in place. They will have dates and times on the class schedule without the DE or RI designations.

Classes Online or On Campus: Registration begins March 29.

Whether you'll be in town or in your hometown, you'll be sure to find a class or two in our list of online or on-campus offerings.

Whether you are taking summer classes in person or online, you might be able to use financial aid to help with your expenses. Check out the general guidelines that apply to summer financial aid overall, as well as specific guidelines for undergraduate students and graduate students.

Take it step-by-step to sign up for summer classes:

  1. Use Degree Works in MyIUP to check your progress toward graduation and what classes you still need.
  2. Check the University-wide Class Schedule to find out what summer classes are offered and how they are set up.
  3. Contact your advisor. (You can find your advisor's contact information in MyIUP.)
  4. Look into summer financial aid.
  5. Register for classes starting on March 29 (which is the same day fall registration begins).

By adding a few classes this summer, you can keep your four-year-plan on track, saving you time and money.

Graduated a Semester Early with Online Classes

I knew I wanted to graduate as quickly as possible and online classes made that happen. Not only did I graduate a semester early, the online classes allowed me to get dual certifications in education and add a minor in educational psychology.
