Summer Courses

Whether you're a rising high school junior or senior, first-year student looking to get a head start on your college career, a current student looking to get ahead or catch up, or a student at another college or university looking to earn credits over the summer, Penn State Brandywine offers numerous summer learning opportunities.

Given the continuing challenge and uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic and to protect the health of students, faculty and staff, Penn State has made the decision to extend virtual delivery of courses into the summer. Further, the University will adjust tuition for the summer sessions in light of the ongoing pandemic and the persistent fiscal strain it is causing across Pennsylvania and the country.

Summer Courses

Penn State Brandywine offers a wide range of small, engaging courses during its two summer sessions: 

  • Summer Session I (May 15–June 26, 2023)
  • Summer Session II (June 28–August 11, 2023)

Summer courses offer the opportunity to catch up, to get ahead, or to add to what you are learning. This might mean taking courses toward a minor or freeing up time in your fall or spring schedule to complete an internship or to study abroad.
