Summer Semester

Accelerate your degree over the summer, choosing from a wide range of online, six-week courses.

Accelerate Your Degree Program

Assumption’s summer courses provide students with the opportunity to complete a semester-long course in six weeks, with an opportunity to concentrate on the subject with fewer distractions. Whether you are enrolled at Assumption or a student from another university—and whether you’re seeking to accelerate your degree program, catch up, or simply focus on a particular course—this opportunity is for you.

Registration for Assumption Students (WebAdvisor)

Registration for Non-Assumption Students

We offer a high-quality, personalized experience for summer students. The courses offered during the summer are the same versions as their fall or spring semester counterparts, taught by the same professors, and provide the same level of intellectual rigor. As such, no special permission is needed for Assumption students to “count” these courses as part of their curriculum. The only real difference is the summer classes cost less than the fall and spring versions. 

Founded in the Catholic intellectual tradition, Assumption University's classic liberal arts curriculum inspires students to explore the relationship between faith and reason and encourages the growth of mind, body, and spirit in an inclusive, open climate. Our students join generations of scientists, artists, writers, and philosophers who have engaged—across disciplines—in a search for truth. 

Modes of Delivery

All Summer Semester courses are offered remotely through the University’s learning management system, Brightspace. 

  • Fully synchronous courses are held at a scheduled day and time via Zoom, and attendance is expected. 
  • Fully asynchronous courses allow students to engage with the course at flexible times that work for them.


  • Assumption students can register for Summer Semester starting on March 20. Summer Semester registration will remain open until May 17.

The Assumption Advantage

  • U.S. News & World Report ranks Assumption in the top-tier school of approximately 200 regional colleges and universities in the Northeast.
  • Barron’s has identified Assumption as a “Best Value College.”
  • The Princeton Review has named Assumption one of the best colleges in the Northeast.
