Summer Courses

Join Us For Summer I or Summer II

Taking summer classes at Ancilla College offers you several advantages.

Whether you are taking a course to fulfill a requirement at your home institution, seeking professional development to build new skills, or taking a course as a high school student to get ahead, you will find many ways to learn something new. You can come to Ancilla's beautiful campus and enjoy the quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Thanks to small classes and close interaction with faculty, summer provides many rich academic opportunities in a comfortable and enjoyable setting. You can also go online with Ancilla and earn credit at home, at work, or on base, no matter where that is.

  • Summer classes can help you stay on track to graduate in four years.
  • If you're a student at another college or university, taking courses that will transfer back to your school will help you accomplish this closer to home.
  • Summer term is shorter, so you'll have time for other activities.
  • Taking classes during the summer can free up your fall schedule for high credit hour courses or electives.

Ancilla College offers dozens of freshman and sophomore level college classes in a variety of disciplines during Summer 2016. We offer two summer terms. Follow the instructions below to apply and register for classes.
