Summer courses at Columbia College can help you stay on track with your degree or even get ahead. 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 do not need to be degree seeking 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.

Here are some of the benefits to consider:

  • 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.
