Summer Session for
Undergraduate Courses

As a visiting student, you will enroll in undergraduate courses drawn from the regular curriculum of the College at the University of Chicago, participating alongside University College students and visiting undergraduates from other schools, with access to the same exceptional educational resources that are available to all students during the regular academic year. All of our summer classes are taught by distinguished professors and experienced lecturers, in smaller classes where you will be able to receive personal attention from your professors and get to know other students in your class well.

Explore course offerings available to visiting students in this year’s Summer Session Undergraduate Course Offerings.
