Summer Sessions


Take Classes. Earn Credits. On Campus or Online.

Summer Sessions


Summer session is the perfect time to catch up or get ahead on credits, improve your GPA and learn unique skills. You will also benefit from small classes and face time with professors—and being able to focus on fewer courses than you would during a normal semester.

Enjoy the sunshine and earn credits.

Frequently Asked Questions About Summer Session

  • How Many Credits Can I Take During Summer Session?

    Answer: For the two-week summer session the maximum is 4 credits and for the five-week summer sessions the maximum is 7 credits per session.  The maximum number of credits for which a student may enroll during the summer session is 15 (including enrollment at SUNY Plattsburgh and at any other colleges).  Students may be granted permission to exceed the maximum number of credits allowed by completing the Credit Hour Overload form (or click on the Attachment tab of this pdf file to retrieve this form).  This form requires written approval from the student's academic advisor, department chairperson, and dean of your major; non-matriculated students must receive permission from the director of admission.
