Summer Session 2016

Unique Learning Opportunity in a Unique Place: The Other Plattsburgh

Summer session is the perfect time to catch up or get ahead on credits, improve your GPA and learn unique skills. You will also benefit from small classes and face time with professors—and being able to focus on fewer courses than you would during a normal semester.

Summer courses are guaranteed. You will get what you sign up for.

Enjoy the sunshine and earn credits.

Get Started

Registration for all matriculated and non-matriculated students begins April 3.



Three Convenient Summer Sessions

Session A: May 23 - June 3, 2016

This two-week intensive session permits you to complete up to three credit hours by the beginning of June. This is a great session to attend if you want to take a course during summer session, but have to return to your hometown or work full-time throughout the summer. View Summer Course Schedule.

Session B: June 6 - July 8, 2016
