Summer session 2023 enrollment opens Feb. 21

Enrollment for 2023 Summer Sessions opens on Feb. 21. Classes run for varying lengths between May 8 to Aug. 13. View the full list of summer classes.

Taking summer classes is a great way for students to get ahead or stay on track with their degree plans. With multiple start dates and session lengths, students can find a flexible option that works for their summer schedules. More than 1,300 class sections are offered in summer 2023, including 900+ online options.

Last year, more than 10,000 students enrolled in summer classes at Boise State.

“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. “Summer classes allowed me to add something on late that I really wanted to do and therefore added an entire certificate to my degree.”

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

Jenkins said students view summer classes as an important pathway to graduation, citing how 82% of last year’s graduates enrolled in at least one summer class during their time at Boise State.
