Summer Semester

We're committed to helping you meet your academic and professional goals on your time. Summer classes give you the flexibility you need.

Summer courses in the College of Arts and Sciences are open to all students at the university. Our summer semester runs from early May to August, and several sessions are offered during those months. You might be interested summer courses for a variety of reasons, including:

Foundational courses

All UofSC undergraduates must complete the Carolina Core. Core courses promote competency in communication, problem-solving, scientific literacy and the arts, no matter your major. Taking core courses during the summer can lighten your load for the coming year.

Intensive courses

During the summer semester, we offer intensive courses in chemistry, Spanish and speech. These accelerated courses are a great way to take time to focus on one subject and get the most out of your experience.

Study abroad

Summer is the perfect time to take advantage of study abroad opportunities, earning college credit while you travel. Advisors at the Student Excellence Collaborative in Flinn Hall can help you explore your options.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
