Take Summer Classes at UIndy

Taking summer classes at UIndy has several advantages:

  • Summer classes can help you stay on track to graduate in four years. If you're a student at another college or university, taking courses that will transfer back to your school will help you accomplish this closer to home.
  • Summer term is shorter, so you'll have more time for other activities.
  • Taking classes during the summer can free up your fall and winter schedules for other electives.
  • You can meet students from other colleges & universities.
  • You'll earn credits from a U.S. News & World Report top-tier Midwest university.

UIndy will offer more than 200 classes in a variety of disciplines during Summer 2017. The summer term runs May 16 to Aug. 19. Class lengths vary, though most are seven weeks. Follow the instructions below to apply and register for classes.

Current UIndy students

If you’re currently a student at UIndy, you DO NOT need to apply again and can simply register for summer courses following the usual registration procedure in My UIndy/UIndy Self Service. You may be eligible for some financial aid if you have remaining eligibility from the 2016-2017 year.

Non-UIndy students

If you’re currently a student in good standing pursuing a degree at another accredited college or university, you can take summer courses at UIndy. Here’s how:

1. Decide which classes to take

Summer 2017 course offerings will be posted in January 2017, so be sure to check back at that time for course listings. If you are planning to take upper-level courses, we may need to verify that you have fulfilled any prerequisites.

2. Apply for admission as a visiting summer student

Complete the visiting summer student application (available January 2017). You also will need to provide an official copy of your transcripts.

3. Register for classes

Once your application and transcripts have been processed and accepted, you’ll get a welcome email that contains instructions for how to set up your UIndy email account and register for courses. You will not be able to register for classes until January 2017, but you can activate your account as soon as you receive the instructions.

4. Make sure your credits will transfer back to your home institution.

Check with the registrar at your college or university to make sure the credits from the classes you take at UIndy will transfer back to your program. The Transferology and TransferIN websites are helpful tools in figuring out which credits might transfer, but are not a final authority. You should check with your registrar to be sure.

Cost & financial aid

The cost for 2017 summer undergraduate courses is $325 per credit hour. Independent study, internships and practica are not available for guest students. Unfortunately, guest students are not eligible for financial aid. Federal regulations mandate that students only receive financial aid at the school where they will get their degree. You can set up a payment plan through the Accounting office, which will allow you to pay the tuition balance in installments.
