Courses are three, four, five or six weeks in length. Each summer course, regardless of length, is the equivalent of a full quarter-long course, yielding 3.3 semester hours or 5 quarter hours of credit (the University of Chicago operates on the quarter, rather than the semester, system).
All courses carry University of Chicago credit. If you are visiting Chicago from another university, contact the dean or academic advisor at your home institution to determine credit transfer procedures; credit applicability is determined by your home institution. Please note that official grades for all courses, regardless of course dates, are not available until after the end of Summer Session (mid-September). Once official grades are available, you may request a transcript.
