Courses are offered at the discretion of faculty, deans and provost who determine if courses are appropriate to offer in summer and winter sessions. If you have questions about course offerings or want to see a class added to the schedule, please contact the department overseeing the specific course you want (for example: ENGL 1 is offered by the English department). Your feedback helps create summer schedules containing the classes you need to graduate faster.
