Summer Semester

Complete a semester-long course (online and in class) in a few weeks while concentrating on a subject matter with fewer distractions.

Accelerate Your Degree Program

Assumption’s summer day 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. 

Registration

  • Assumption students may register for summer courses when they register for fall semester courses through WebAdvisor until May 7.
  • Registration for the Class of 2021 opens April 14, with the other classes gaining access to the system shortly thereafter. The online WebAdvisor registration system will remain open for summer registration until May 7. Students from other institutions of higher learning may register beginning April 27. To register, email registrar@assumption.edu and include your name as well as the courses in which you would like to enroll.

The Assumption Advantage

The value of an Assumption education is witnessed in the success of our graduates and through the national recognition the University has received:

  • 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.
