summer_sessionWe have good news about Wesleyan’s Summer Session, offering summer courses June 7 – July 9, 2010. Due to the excitement generated by last week’s announcement, we have decided to open registration for Summer Session courses earlier than originally planned. Registration will now open next Tuesday, December 8.

Course information is available online at www.wesleyan.edu/summer. Please keep Summer Session options in mind, particularly when talking with first- and second-year students or advisees.

With Wesleyan’s Summer Session, students can:

  • experience the excitement and challenge of intensive, accelerated study
  • register for popular courses
  • discover interesting new upper-level courses and summers-only Thematic Institutes
  • give themselves more options during the school year, and more time to get involved in performances, sports, or other activities
  • get an internship in fall or spring, when competition is less fierce than it is in summer

The registration form is available on the Summer Session website and in the student e-portfolio. Interested students may download the form, complete it, including all necessary approval signatures, and submit the form with the $500 deposit (or with the financial aid form, if applying for aid) to the Summer Session office at 284 High Street.
