Important update:  The 2024 Summer School will follow the teaching, learning, and safety protocols as required by the Vice-Chancellor.

The six-week summer session at Sewanee offers an opportunity for College students to take one or two courses (up to eight credit hours) and thereby facilitate progress toward earning their degree, noting that students wishing to reside on campus are expected to enroll in two full courses (8 credit hours).

Additionally, summer school can provide incoming first-year students an opportunity to adapt themselves to the academic demands of College in a focused environment.

To a large extent the summer session is a projection of the academic year. Regular Sewanee faculty provide the instruction, and the course content and academic standards in most courses are the same. Summer School offers an even more personal experience, with a smaller student-faculty ratio making possible an even more intimate classroom environment, and daily class meetings (except as noted, classes meet 75 minutes daily, Monday through Friday) promoting stronger community.

Summer School 2024 will begin Monday, June 3, and end on Saturday, July 13 (the end of finals).
