Students: Does your graduation plan include
Summer and Winter Sessions?
Why invest in special sessions?
Want to get ahead or catch up with your coursework? The University of Delaware has a long tradition of offering high-quality courses rooted in research-based knowledge throughout the year — including winter and summer sessions between our traditional semesters.
Summer session includes two five-week terms or a 10-week term, and winter session is a five-week term. Both sessions include UD’s popular study abroad programs, as well as many in-person, online and hybrid classes to help students meet their graduation goals.
Want to get ahead or caught up with your coursework? Here’s your chance.
Not a current UD student? No problem.
Take advantage of summer or winter break and learn from top faculty at an R1 research institution.
Whether you are a current UD student, a pre-baccalaureate certificate student or a student from another college or university who needs transfer credits, UD has a summer or winter session course for you!
Many courses can be taken online — whether it’s studying in a dorm room or living room back home.
