Help your student get ahead this summer! Summer Session at Western is a great opportunity for your student to get ahead or stay on track for graduation with accelerated on-campus courses, online courses, field study opportunities and travel programs.

Facts about Summer Session

  • Students can graduate a quarter early by enrolling in summer courses
  • Summer session provides smaller classes for better student-faculty interaction
  • There is less competition for necessary credits during the summer
  • Students can live on campus for rates less expensive than off campus

However, your student doesn't have to be the only one having all the fun. Summer Session is an open quarter, meaning those who are not formally admitted to Western can also be students. This might be a great opportunity for you to also explore some of the great programs that Western has to offer. Learn more by visiting the Community Members section of this site.
