Summer Session 2013
Each summer the University of Virginia offers a rich selection of courses to over four thousand students through its Summer Session. Many of these courses are not available during the academic year. Summer Session students have access to an array of support services and extra-curricular activities.
The mission of the University's Summer Session is to supplement academic year course offerings, to facilitate fulfillment of undergraduate and graduate degree requirements, and to extend access to the resources of the University of Virginia to students enrolled at other colleges or universities, rising high school juniors and seniors, and lifelong learners.
Summer study abroad programs are available in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, Central America and South America. Over 100 courses in the Arts and Sciences, Architecture, Commerce, Engineering, and Public Health are offered. Intensive language programs and interdisciplinary studies are also available. Many UVa study abroad programs welcome students from other colleges and universities.
The application process for Summer study abroad programs is managed by the International Studies Office (ISO). Application deadlines vary by program. Interested students must complete the online Education Abroad Workshop before initiating the application process.
The Summer Session is funded through the Office of the Vice President and Provost. The Director of the Summer Session reports to the Vice Provost for Academic Programs and is counseled by the Summer Session Faculty Advisory Committee.
