Summer Session 2017

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.
