Summer College

UVA Wise offers more than 30 summer courses that can help you complete your general education requirements (whether you are a UVA Wise student or not) and fulfill elective needs with fascinating courses. Offerings from business, education, English, music, psychology, and sociology are held online in two five-week sessions.

Summer Session I runs from May 24 to June 25. Summer II is from July 6 to August 6, 2021.

Taught by full-time faculty, classes are often small—approximately 12 to 15 students per course—and a great way to receive individual guidance from your professors.

Tuition & Financial Aid

Summer course tuition is $250 per credit hour for Virginia residents. For out-of-state tuition and other pertinent cost details see our summer fee information. Financial aid is available, including federal Pell assistance.

UVA Wise is proud to be consistently ranked by U.S. News and World Report as one of the top national public colleges whose students graduate with a low debt load. We’re glad to help you explore financial aid options to attend Summer College.  Contact the Office of Financial Aid by email at finaid@uvawise.edu or by scheduling a chat with a financial aid or admissions officer.

Session I registration will conclude May 25, 2021 and Session II registration will conclude on July 7, 2021.
