Plan for Summer

Meet your goals with a summer plan

Taking classes during the summer can be a smart strategy to meet your goals for your degree timeline. Meet with your academic advisor to discuss the best options for summer coursework for you.

At IU Bloomington

  • Most students can start registering for summer classes in late-March. See One.IU > Student Center > Enrollment Dates to find out when you can start enrolling.
  • Use iGPS Course Search to learn about summer course offerings.
  • Read the Enrollment Bulletin for exact session dates, as well as important registration, drop, and refund deadlines.
  • See Student Central on Union to estimate tuition and fees for summer courses.

At other Indiana University Campuses

  • Apply to other IU Campuses as a visiting or temporary transfer student.
  • Go to iGPS Course Search, and change "Campus" see course offerings at other IU campuses.
  • Use the IU Online website to find online course offerings.
  • Meet with your advisor to make sure the course will count toward your Bloomington degree.
  • Call the orientation office for the campus where you intend to take summer classes. You could be required to attend an orientation program/event or be required to complete placement exams in math, foreign language or English composition.
  • You do not need to reapply to return to Bloomington if you applied as a visiting (or temporary) intercampus transfer.
  • You do not need to have a copy of your summer transcript sent to Bloomington. You have one IU transcript for all campuses attended.
