The University of Minnesota, Morris Summer Term provides a broad selection of summer courses for degree- and nondegree-seeking students. Registration opens Wednesday, March 21.

A fully accredited institution in west central Minnesota, Morris makes it easy for community members and students from Morris and other colleges to enroll in undergraduate courses. Summer courses offer the same academic rigor and faculty dedication as classes taught during fall and spring semesters, but in a condensed format.


Students who have completed summer term classes say courses gave them an advantage in academic standing and offered flexibility to participate in internships and summer jobs. This stems from the variety of formats offered: in-classroom, online, and independent study.

"I took an archaeological field school course the May session after my freshman year," says Noah Pilugin '18. "It was a 4000-level elective in my major that provided a unique opportunity to learn valuable skills I couldn't otherwise learn in a normal classroom setting."

"I was able to further my learning in a welcoming environment while enjoying the perks of summer," adds Breanna Flanegan '18.

The Sessions

May Session (May 14–June 1) will offer courses in biology, chemistry, and Native American and indigenous studies.

Summer Sessions I (May 21–June 22) and II (June 25–July 27) will offer courses in studio art; chemistry; communication, media, and rhetoric; economics; education; history; management; music; political science; psychology; Spanish; sociology; statistics; and philosophy.

Summer Session I through II (May 21 - July 27) will include courses on health science terminology and Scandinavian mythology.

Summer Campus Life

Summer Term provides many advantages to students wanting to continue their educations past spring semester. It provides the opportunity to expedite a degree, make up missing courses, meet general requirements, and work while earning credits. Students enrolled in summer courses receive first-priority placement for on-campus housing and have access to campus dining options as well as health services through Stevens Community Medical Center.
