Summer Session is one academic term, however it is organized into multiple sessions so that courses can be scheduled with flexibility. Each session has different requirements and deadlines, so make sure to visit the deadlines page to learn more. 

While our summer calendar lists session dates, it is important to note that:

  • There are four different start dates for summer session courses, depending on the session.
  • There is no "dead week" (pre-finals week) during summer session, as in regular academic terms.
  • Final exams are usually given during the last week of class. Check with your instructor for specifics.


On-site courses

There are more than 1,200 courses in over 100 subjects offered on the Corvallis campus and the Oregon coast this summer, giving you an incredible variety of classes to choose from as you complete major requirements and work toward graduation. Check the Schedule of Classes to see what courses are being offered this summer! 

Registration for all summer courses starts April 14. For more information on registration, visit the Registration page.

While the content of all summer classes is equivalent to a regular 11-week term, many summer courses are offered in accelerated sessions that last one, three, four or eight weeks. Check classroom meeting times in the course description, as these accelerated sessions typically meet for longer hours than during a standard term.

Online summer classes are administered via OSU Ecampus
