Summer School

Summer courses offer students the opportunity to take a class that did not fit into their previous schedule, lighten their upcoming fall and spring schedule, or graduate earlier. Start planning your summer schedule by reviewing our registration calendar and schedule of classes.

The amount of your summer tuition discount depends on your status as a student:

  • Indiana resident undergraduates receive a 25% discount on summer courses on any IU campus.
  • Nonresident undergraduates receive an equivalent dollar reduction in their tuition that is equal in value to the 25% discount that in-state students receive.
