Summer Session Courses

Visiting Students

Choose from more than 250 courses

Each summer Northwestern University welcomes students and adults over the age of 18 to take advantage of Summer Session's convenient open enrollment and access to more than 250 undergraduate courses, including intensive sequences that enable students to earn a full year of credit in chemistry, physics and a number of foreign languages. Get ahead on credit towards your degree or simply try something new. Summer courses are flexibly scheduled, ranging from two to ten weeks and taught during the day, evening and on weekends.

The University reserves the right to cancel classes when necessary, including those for which registration is not sufficient.

PLEASE NOTE: Summer registration ends June 19, 2023 for ALL summer courses, including second and third intensive sequence courses and courses that begin later in the summer.

Northwestern University requires all students enrolled in Summer Session to be vaccinated (including boosters) or receive an approved exception to Northwestern's vaccination requirement.
