Think Summer at CWRU

With over 100 undergraduate and graduate courses in the College of Arts and Sciences, Case School of Engineering, and Weatherhead School of Management, the CWRU Summer Session is a great opportunity to catch up or get ahead. CWRU and visiting students can study abroad and complete a course immersed in an international setting, including: Cuba, France, or Italy. Or enjoy a CWRU Summer on campus and concentrate on one or more intensive courses. Planning for a pre-health career? We will have the full range of biology core courses in 2020. Students can also complete a full year of introductory chemistry, organic chemistry, or physics in back-to-back sessions. The CWRU Summer Session is also a great opportunity to save money. Tuition for courses numbered 100-399 is half rate of fall and spring semesters. Think summer and plan to be successful!
