The Office of Summer and Intersession Programs manages the schedule for undergraduate Intersession courses. To learn more about Intersession course offerings and tuition charges for graduate students, please visit the specific division’s website.

Intersession Courses

Each January, academic departments representing the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering sponsor a diverse set of 1, 2, or 3-week undergraduate courses that are not typically offered during the academic year. Students who are interested may take one or two intersession courses, which are graded Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory.

There is no additional tuition for current degree-seeking undergraduates who have been registered full-time for the preceding Fall semester. Students who do not meet these criteria are charged tuition on a per-credit basis.

Students may not register for two classes that meet simultaneously or that have overlapping times. Once a time conflict occurs, students just take immediate action and resolve the conflict by dropping one of the courses. Questions regarding the availability of additional seats should be directed to the instructor(s) or department(s) offering the relevant course(s).
