Summer Term


Our team of administrators, program managers and event coordinators are responsible for the planning, coordination and delivery of undergraduate courses offered by UW–Madison from May to August. Today, there are more than 1,000 courses, both on campus and online, being offered during Summer Term. In addition to UW–Madison students, our programs serve visiting, transfer, international and high school students.

What we do

We work in partnership with university schools and colleges to build summer offerings, create new programs and communicate relevant Summer Term information to students, faculty and staff. Our goal is to help students access the classes they want and need in summer to meet degree requirements and graduate on time.

In addition, we manage multiple early-start programs for incoming students, host information events, administer Summer Term scholarships, and coordinate student advisory panels.
