Know how summer courses work! 


If you are taking summer classes, there are a few important things to know regarding tuition, GPA, and maintaining a successful schedule.
  • Courses taken during the summer at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities contribute to your cumulative and technical GPA.
  • Summer courses taken at the University of Minnesota count towards academic standing requirements. Poor performance can lead to academic suspension or probation.
  • Tuition is different for summer courses. Please visit with One Stop if you have questions about summer tuition and potential fees.
  • Summer courses move quickly and meet more frequently than you might be used to. Carefully evaluate your ability to be successful.
If you are considering taking or are registered for courses over the summer at another institution, here are a couple of things to keep in mind.
  • Courses taken outside of the University of Minnesota system will not count into your University of Minnesota GPAs. 
  • It is your responsibility to request an official transcript from the transfer institution be sent to the University of Minnesota Office of Admissions after your course has ended. 
  • If you are planning to take a transfer course to fulfill a technical requirement, make sure it is an approved equivalent course. You can find that information on the CSE Technical Equivalencies Guide. You can find information on approved liberal education courses on the Admissions website
Additionally, there is more information available on the academic advising blog about taking summer courses.

You may also make an appointment to talk with your academic advisor if you have additional questions. You can schedule your appointment in one of three ways:
If you have quick questions regarding summer courses, we suggest using advising drop-in hours Monday-Friday, 2-4 p.m., in Lind Hall, Suite 105.

Students admitted to the University Honors Program (UHP) should meet with an honors advisor in Northrop, Suite 390. Visit the University Honors Program website for your honors advisor's office hours.
