CSU Summer is home to credit-bearing courses, Accelerated Programs, and the K-12 Summer Programs Portal. Enrolled CSU students and Summer-Only students are welcome to take classes on campus and online through CSU Summer Session. With over 1,700 courses, the 4-, 8-, 12-week and additional-length terms allow students to focus deeply on fewer classes. Students may study at the CSU Mountain Campus, complete an AUCC course, internship, work on a major or minor, or try something new. Degree-seeking students can pursue one of 31 current accelerated programs and graduate in 3-3.5 years by taking summer courses. K-12 summer programs are available for pre-kindergarten through high school students in a variety of academic areas and sports. Explore, experience, and expand through CSU Summer!
