About Summer School

Summer school at Wofford, conducted in two terms of five weeks each, begins each year in June and ends in August. The summer academic program reflects the same general purpose as that of the fall and spring semesters.

In each term, summer courses normally meet five times weekly, Monday through Friday, in daily class sessions of one hour and 45 minutes per course. In addition, science courses have laboratories three afternoons a week. Most summer courses carry credit of three or four semester hours each, and students may undertake a maximum of two courses per term.

Students enrolled in summer school are housed in Wofford’s award-winning Village apartments. With a range of amenities, including a sand-volleyball pit, basketball court, wide porches or balconies and vast lawns, the Village is more than just summer housing – it’s a first-rate residential community. Living in the Village is an experience usually reserved for seniors, but students in all class years are able to live there during the summer sessions.

Wofford’s Office of Financial Aid will contact Wofford students who are eligible for summer school financial aid.
