2021 Summer Session is just around the corner!


The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is once again offering online courses during Summer Session 2021.

The summer term begins on May 17, 2021, and runs through Aug. 5, 2021, with 4-, 8-, and 12-week courses available. View the Summer 2021 Academic Calendar.

Summer Session allows undergraduate and non-degree students to take a course in an online format from anywhere in the world. It’s also open to students who are enrolled at other educational institutions.

This year, there are 700-plus courses to choose from, and all are taught by our world-class Illinois faculty. The courses are rigorous yet manageable in the condensed time period.

It’s a great time to take a high-demand course that’s hard to get into in the fall or spring. It’s also a great time to catch up on credits, increase your overall GPA, take an interesting class that’s not in your field of study, or work toward a minor.

Priority registration begins in conjunction with Fall 2021 registration on April 19, and open registration for all students begins on May 6.

Students can check out our Summer Session video for a glimpse of some of the exciting courses they can take. View the Summer Session 2021 Course List and check back often for updates.
