Summer Session 2018

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.

Enjoy the sunshine and earn credits.

Get Started

Guidebook and course schedule will be available for viewing by mid-March.

Registration for all matriculated students begins April 2, 2018.

Registration for all non-matriculated students begins April 9, 2018.

Three Convenient Summer Sessions

Session A:  May 29, 2018 - June 8, 2018

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 Course Schedule.

Session B:  June 11, 2018 - July 13, 2018

This session allows you to finish one or more courses before mid-summer.  The majority of SUNY Plattsburgh's course offerings take place in Session B.  View Course Schedule.

Summer Session C:  July 16, 2018 - August 17, 2018

This session accommodates students who prefer mid-summer study.  View Course Schedule.
