2019 Summer sessions are May 11- June 24 and June 24-August 9.

Why leave campus when you can stay here and get ahead on gen eds or classes for your major? You can also retake certain courses for a better grade and save money with a special summer tuition rate. The best part about taking a summer course is that it lasts only a few weeks!

Beginning March 1, you can register for classes and check class times via the online course searchNote: Up until registration, classes are subject to change.

Keep in Mind

  • Meeting with an Academic Advisor is strongly encouraged to discuss how class options work towards career aspirations/ degree completion.
  • If you have a hold on your registration placed by an administrative office you need to contact the noted office to discuss the problem and rectify the situation before the hold will be lifted. (e.g. Student Affairs, Student Accounts) 
  • In addition, check your emergency/missing person contact information on MySAU Portal. Failure to have updated contact information may restrict you from registration. Information can be updated on MySAU Portal under Student Self Service. 
  • Finally, academic departments may have entered class restrictions on courses and only the instructor teaching the class has the authority to override them or give you permission to register, but be forewarned that such approvals are rare.

2019 Summer Courses
