Enrolling in summer classes is a great way to get ahead or stay on track academically. Last summer, more than 10,000 students enrolled in summer classes at Boise State. Summer classes are flexible, with multiple start dates and session lengths throughout the summer. More than 1,300 class sections are offered in summer 2022, including 900-plus online options.

“The best thing about summer classes [is that] I got to be a part of a program that I didn’t even realize was a thing until my junior year,” said student Makayla Butler, who took summer classes in 2021. “Summer classes allowed me to add something on late that I really wanted to do and therefore added an entire certificate to my degree.”

According to 2020-2021 graduation data, 72% of first-year students who graduated within four years enrolled in at least one Boise State summer class.

The summer resident per-credit rate is 20%less than the fall and spring per-credit rate. The summer non-resident per-credit rate is more than 50% less than the fall and spring non-resident per-credit rate. Please note: Alternative fee programs and classes are excluded from the summer discount. Find detailed information about course fees in the individual course listing via myBoiseState.

Need some extra motivation to take the plunge into summer classes? Hear why students and faculty are all-in:

“I really love being able to take a small load of classes to help myself stay on track for graduation during the summer,” said summer student Emily Berry.

“I think I learned more in those five weeks than I could have from a full class over the typical 16-week session,” said summer student Sarah Hiatt. “It was so nice to have more direct interaction with both the lecture and lab instructors!”

“We hear from faculty that they appreciate the opportunity to teach year-round and getting to know their students in a more casual environment,” said Regina Jenkins, director of summer sessions. “They also enjoy being creative with how they teach the material in a condensed period.”

Eighty-one percent of last year’s graduates enrolled in at least one summer class during their time at Boise State. Jenkins said this demonstrates that students view summer classes as an important pathway to graduation.
