Summer Sessions

Submitted by Regina Jenkins, Director, Summer Sessions

Summer Registration Begins Feb. 19

Even though there is still snow on the mountains (and occasionally on campus) your student can begin registering for Boise State summer courses on February 19.

Summer classes can help your student graduate faster, pursue a minor, or take a more manageable course load during the academic year. In fact, 77% of last year’s graduating Boise State students took summer classes during their time here. Last summer, more than 9,000 students took summer classes, and more than half of those classes were taken online.

Other Perks?

Summer classes are typically smaller than spring and fall classes, allowing more informal interactions in a relaxed environment between your student and faculty members.

Our summer students say it best:

There’s a more casual, laid back feeling in the summertime

I loved my three-week class. It was intense, but meeting every day was an opportunity to really immerse myself in the content.

My online professor was really helpful while I was in Thailand!

Financial aid may also be available for your student. Learn more on the Summer Financial Aid page. Learn more at Contact Regina Jenkins at (208) 426-3295 or
