Over 70 Online Courses

Summer courses at Columbia College can help you get ahead or stay on track with your degree. Whether you are making progress toward a degree, transitioning to Columbia College, or focusing on continuing education credits, our summer sessions have exactly what you need.

Our summer sessions are open to all continuing and returning Columbia College students as well as all other qualified students: visitors from other colleges and universities, international students, high school students, and adult learners. You don't need to be a degree-seeking student to enroll in a summer online course. In response to COVID-19, all of our Summer 2020 classes will be provided in an online format.

Benefits of Online Classes 

  • Summer classes are shorter in length:  Lasting 5-weeks, 8-weeks, and 10-weeks
  • Avoid the summer learning gap and stay in study mode
  • Graduate early or on time
  • Flexibility: Taking an online course means you work around your current schedule and have the ability to choose your own learning environment.
  • Each of our Summer 2020 online undergraduate courses are $295/credit hour and are comprehensive, with no additional costs for fees, books, or instructional materials.
